Preliminary works are underway at Domain Interchange and track relocationin Toorak Rd West and St Kilda Rd is scheduled for mid year. So theattached photos courtesy of State Library Victoria are worth a look. Theyshow the construction of the first electric track at the intersection in1926 as it replaced the cable tramway. No hard hats or high-vis vests here.
The photos are rich in detail, including the destinations of two new Wclass trams, the Hoadley factory chimney and the contractor’s nameprominently displayed. (The contractor appears to have commissioned thephotos.) I found they are best viewed by downloading the high resolutionTIFF files using the “handles” listed below.
The first photo is looking south along St Kilda Rd with Park St, SouthMelbourne on the right. http://handle.slv.vic.gov.au/10381/336759
The second is about 50 metres further south showing the disconnected DomainRd cable track. http://handle.slv.vic.gov.au/10381/336820
The third is looking northward with Domain Rd on the right and Park St inthe background left*. *http://handle.slv.vic.gov.au/10381/336839
The temporary track built on the western side of St Kilda Rd was aforerunner of the more elaborate diversion planned for this year. Bramleyposted these planning diagrams back on 3 December 2016
