Clive recalls days of Rocky trams
CLIVE Munday was eight years old when trams ran through the city of Rockhampton.
He still has memories of the 1930s and when the now 82-year-old saw the photo published in Monday's Morning Bulletin as part of our Blast from the Past series he wondered whether he was the young boy featured in the old image with the tram.
"My father was a conductor of the trams right up until they were taken out of commission in 1939," Mr Munday said.
"It looks very much like him in the photo so I think it may be me as a young boy."
Clive said his father would take him on a free ride on the tram as well.
We've received many calls about the photo, including from Rockhampton man Leonard Stevens who believes the photo was taken around 1910 at the Rockhampton Showgrounds which was where the tramway terminated.
Leonard, 79, who has an interest in the history of trams, said the rail was extended to Bracher St in Wandal 1922.
