trams in Hay Street, Perth, Western Australia, early 1900s

Probably taken not long after Perth's cape gauge tram system opened in September 1899.  It reached about 50 km in route length before closing in July 1958.  The only cables of the many visible that needed to be above ground were those for the trams, eventually the idea of burying the rest under the tarmac took hold.
