Maylands Tram Barn

Today I went on a "history bicycle ride" in the Norwood-St Peters area; one of the many activities on offer as part of History Week.

In the early days of South Australia an Adelaide and suburban network of horse drawn trams was built. This tram shed, built in 1882, is on Magill Road and was part of the depot at Maylands. On the site there was also a foreman's office and stables.

In the 1980's the site was redeveloped to incorporate residential town houses. The original facade and main structure has been retained.

That looks very pretty. Are the houses very expensive?

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments.

I love the contrast of the colors between the sky and the house. Beautiful.
