Old Doncaster Tram and Tower

Front - In 1889 the first electric tram in Australia (in fact the southern hemisphere) ran between Doncaster Hill and Box Hill along what is now Tram Road. The artwork depicts the tram, the surrounding hills with their orchards, and the young Melbourne in the background.
BACK - The Doncaster tram used to be promoted as part of a day trip from Melbourne City. Get the train to Box Hill, get the Tram to Doncaster, and while your there visit the amazing Doncaster Tower which was built by a local publican to try attract tourists and hopefully land buyers and settlers to the area.
