Re: Trams passing...teashops

Sorry Mr Hunslet, trams definitely did pass the Tea Gardens Hotel, in fact
Sydney's first electric trams did.

The Waverley/Bronte line (and the Waverley Depot to Coogee line) used this
section of Bronte Rd, turning right out of Oxford St. The locality was
known as Tea Gardens until the branch to Bondi Aq'm was opened. At one
stage the first section of Bronte Rd may have been known as Brisbane St.
