Tong Road, laying tram track
Description:
August 1911. View of workmen laying out a tram track on Tong Road. The two men in the foreground are carrying out an exothermic process known as Thermite welding. The original tramway had been a single lane with passing places every so often, but later a second lane was installed; this image is likely to be connected to the removal of a passing place and laying of the second track. A line of chimneys in the background are believed to be from houses on Cedar Terrace.
