Public Transport

This diverse collection spans 100 years and shows the relationship between Australia's growing population and evolving public transport systems.

Footage includes the North Shore ferry in 1899; Melbourne's iconic Flinders Street Station in the 1950s, already servicing one million passengers daily; and Sydney's Central Square (Railway Square). Now a busy bus interchange, Central Square was once a bustling tramway hub for Sydney's commuters back in the 1920s.
