Click, Clack! Click, Clack! Pictured is the Enoggera tram on its final day – travelling to Chermside on Sunday 1st December, 1968.
While the very last tram journey took place in Brisbane the following year on 13th April, 1969 (over 50 years ago!), this would be the last service that took place in the Enoggera area.
Who out there remembers when trams were an iconic feature of Brisbane’s transport network and way of life? Who still has some memorabilia from those days – such as photos, tickets, an old timetable or something of the likes?
Remember: You can still re-live such memories from yesteryear by visiting the wonderful Brisbane Tramway Museum on Tramway Street, Ferny Grove – next door to the Grove Sports Club. The centre is open to the public every Sunday from 1pm to 4pm. For enquiries phone, 3351 1776.
And don’t forget: the Enoggera & Districts Historical Society Inc. has just re-opened its history display to the local community each Thursday morning from 9.30am. Just visit the Enoggera Memorial Hall in Wardell Street (parking in Trundle Street). Social distancing and COVID-19 rules apply, but you are most welcome to drop in for a look and a cuppa.
Finally, thank you to the late T V Gall of Alderley for donating to the Society the accompanying photo of the last Enoggera tram.
Take care, everyone Andrew McMicking, President
