Creating a Tramway Titan

February 19 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

In 2020, Melbourne retains the title of having the largest electric street tram system in the world. This presentation will look at the tramway’s history and why Melbourne retains the title of being a Tramway Titan. The Prahran and Malvern Tramways Trust played a part in this. A Public Private Partnership built a capable tram network in 1885, and the MMBW was formed in 1919.

Our guest speaker will be Warren Doubleday, Manager of the Melbourne Tram Museum collection, and Museum Services Manager of the Ballarat Tramway Museum. Come prepared to be intrigued by the facts and related stories.

This is a free event presented by the Malvern Historical Society. Supper will be served.

Bookings essential: Lorraine 9885 9082 by 16 Feb.

All welcome!
