We still had horse-drawn milk carts in Box Hill in the early 1970s. I
don't remember when they stopped. But we didn't have trams then. I used to
walk to Mont Albert to catch the tram. Then I moved to NZ and decades later
the tram reached Box Hill!
I am even more surprised that trams run through the streets again in
Sydney. All the way to Circular Quay. I never thought I'd see that. I
never saw it first time round. But, Covid-willing, I'll see it on Thursday!
