What a contrast. It's a pity that the tram had to disappear.
Thanks Bill for the trip down memory lane.....I first visited Brisbane in 1968 (Spent our Honeymoon on the Gold Coast and took a day trip to Brissie)...your photo is just how I remember it, tram and all.....amazing what difference 40 odd years makes.
:....I prefer it.."then"..!!
So do I, bring back the trams. In fact,,,bring back 1948 !!!
What a difference, I love this old tramway we had them here too I used to ride on them to go to work, lol ! and these huge buildings grew in Brussels too !
Hi Bill, thank you for your visit and message.It is interesting to see Brisbane from your perspective. I do not go often up any more so this will be interesting. I like trams in a city,or the very fast underground trains which bring you quickly from one place to the other. But then in Queensland we have so much time! I think the city is more attractive today. A fairly young city has to go with the time and contemporary, smart buildings. Many of the earlier blocks were very dreary. In a architectural view awfully plain and nasty looking. I like it how you show the difference. Have fun with your city shots. Au as haerzlich Grueassli (Buendner Dialekt) T.
