Molesworth Street, Wellington, 1949 - goodbye tram tracks
A steamroller compacts the substrate prior to aspalting where the tramtracks were in Molesworth Street, Wellington, on 2 April 1949. A pair of 1947 Ford 2-ton dump trucks can be seen also standing on this. Meanwhile a Leyland diesel bus demonstrates what has replaced the trams. Actually, trolleybuses to Wadestown were then put on this route which lasted till the late 1980s.
