At Anzac Parade Junction, trams carry crowds from the racecourse to Circular Quay and from the Sydney Showground to Central Station. The busy intersection is a bustling chaos of trams, buses, cars and pedestrians all of which are kept in order by the adept directions of traffic police. The camera films from a slightly elevated vantage point at one corner of the intersection, following the movement of the traffic as it flows across the junction.

This silent black-and-white footage shows how the tram system in Sydney handles large crowds, including footage of the busy intersection at Anzac Parade Junction.
