Photogaphers Evening 2015

During the afternoon and evening of Saturday, 25 July, the Museum held its inaugural Photographer’s event. Museum volunteers created six photographic ‘sets’ using our trams and other props to represent different eras from Edwardian Sydney through to1960’s Brisbane. A large number of photographers wandered around the sets capturing the moment and the changing light conditions.


The great food delighted our public so special thanks go to Filomena Critchley, Paula Newton and Mitchell Skillhorn for their catering.

A good number of our members turned out for the afternoon and had been there from the morning onwards, moving trams around in preparation for the beginning. One, well rugged up in the evening, pictured, is Bob Cooper who works both on maintenance and on many of our public days in our Traffic Team providing the service to the public.

It also provided an ‘excuse’ for some members (and visitors!) to dress up in costumes from various periods and pose with our trams and the visiting period cars.

The result were spectacular and just a few of the results are displayed here. Our thanks to photographers Greg Davis, ZOS Photography, Nerida Grewal, Belinda Pittard and SJB Photography for allowing us to use use their images.
