Monday, 13 April 1936 - two cable tram "dummy + trailer" sets wait to depart the terminus in Lonsdale Street, between Swanston and Elizabeth Streets. Today this section of road is spanned by the elevated walkway between the Emporium Melbourne​ and Melbourne Central​ buildings. The first tram is destined for North Carlton (Rathdowne Street) and will travel via Russell, Lygon, and Elgin Streets; the tram following is desined for Collingwood via the same route, then along Johnston Street. Today these streets are served by buses in the "200/250" series of routes. (Ray Pearson Collection, courtesy Mal Rowe/TMSV).
