More trampath near Manly, 1976

Sydney had one of the world's largest tram networks prior to about 1950... but it progressively got pulled apart in favour of buses, finally closing in 1961. We were left with trampaths in bushland settings, or weird reservations in the middle of roads... and the odd bit of steel in the road surface.

This is the climb from the Spit. The trams ran from here to Manly, and on to Narrabeen. What a useful service that would be today...
