Street Balmain, circa 1908
An early electric tram (F Class) passes Loyalty Square on its way to the Darling Street Wharf. This streetscape has changed very little over the decades and most of the buildings seen here are still standing.
The absence of the motor car is most evident and the verandahs add an appealing aspect to the street. Note the canvas blind shading the pavement on the right and the red flag in the left foreground, warning tram drivers of trackwork ahead.
