BENDIGO TRAMS - 40th ANNIVERSARY - BENDIGO TRAMS
HISTORIC AND NOSTALGIC - This 40th. Anniversary of Bendigo Trams ceasing to run as a passenger service can be seen in the many gorgeous images that I took in 1972. THEY SHOW THE VERY ESSENCE OF BENDIGO AT THAT TIME - THE TRAMS, THE CARS, THE PEOPLE AND THE STREETSCAPE WHICH HAS CHANGED SO MUCH. I WILL BE POSTING MORE IMAGES SOON showing the "Now and Then" views of our wonderful streetscape, so do keep watching this space. Please feel free to comment back to my email if you wish on: firstname.lastname@example.org
