Yeah, exactly. Though here, a ban on eating and drinking is taken to mean that water is nonetheless permitted. It surprises me in Queensland that they have the ban even on the 2.5 hour service from Gympie North to Brisbane.

So, more trams. Well, same tram as the last picture. Here it is on Melville Road, stopped at Victoria Street with an Anglican church that probably gets about 5 visitors a week in the background.

Here's a Z3 outside the Queen Vic Markets. This scene has all changed now that a new "Superstop" has been built. Superstop my arse. I prefer the ground level ones.

Nah, it was a video at the library - actually, that's kind of funny, my brother had finished reading a biography of Bing Crosby's earlier years, read about this film and thought "wow, I'll never find this!" - and as it turns out it's at the nearest library!

Now he's telling me some antics Carole Lombard got up to on the set, i.e. flashing.
Oh I love Channel 31, it's full of these old movies...

And yeah I was just reading about Carole Lombard now on imdb, she was famous for that, and swearing lots, when good ladies didn't, and generally not being a lady. She made 75 movies before she died at 33, now that's a work ethic!

I like the reflection of the trees on this tram in Peel Street.
