Here's another - from a couple of years later when Ballarat was saying farewell to trams.
This time it was called a "Last Trammail Cover" - and I had moved houses.
Both the Brisbane and Ballarat designs seem to be copied from the Sydney "Last Day Cover" from 1961 (image also attached).
Peter Neve was there on that occasion See: https://tdu.to/i/47244
