Shooting through on the Northside

Members and visitors are invited to join us for our monthly meeting on this coming Saturday, 15th June, at 2:00 pm in the Gordon Library Meeting Rooms, 799 Pacific Highway, Gordon.

Peter Kahn, from The Sydney Tramway Museum at Loftus, will talk about a time when Sydney was one of the world's great tram cities. Peter joined the Museum in 1959 and since that time has served in various offices, taken an active part in restoring old trams and regularly promotes the Museum  with talks to community groups.

In its heyday, Sydney’s tram network was the largest in Australia and the second largest in the Commonwealth (after London) and one of the largest in the world, with about 1,600 cars in active service during the 1930s.
