Sydney Trams: Historic Photos From the Fairfax Archive

Trams began operating in Sydney in 1879, and by the 1920s the network had grown to become one of the world's largest. By 1961, the network had been largely dismantled and replaced with buses and trains.

Mass car ownership and traffic congestion concerns drove the decision to terminate trams. The last tram service ran on the La Perouse and Maroubra Beach lines in 1961, ending 100 years of tram services in Sydney.
