Old Dreadnought tram heads out to the Belmont terminus while in the background an FM is heading for the City. Over 40 years later, about 500 metres of these two sets of tram lines are still visible on Old Cleveland Road. They are the only such lines and the suburb is now called Carina.

A trolley bus about to leave the Storey Bridge over the Brisbane River in the 1950's, in Queensland, Australia. Hard to believe it  now has 6 always packed lanes of traffic. The alternative is a 6.8 km tunnel under the river.
