Here are two views of that intersection: Bronte Road and Oxford Street. The top one taken in about 1902 when the tram line was electrified. The next one taken yesterday. What a difference 110 years makes! Duh!!
In the 1902 image The Tea Gardens Hotel is on the right in the background, the tall corner building. Two coupled E class tram cars have just turned from Oxford Street into Bronte Street. They will go past the Tea Gardens Hotel and continue on to Waverley. Coming through that same intersection, but remaining on Oxford Street is a dairy cart. Keep this dairy cart in mind for tomorrow.
Once again, some of the iconic pub images from the '30s adorn the walls of the Tea Gardens Hotel, indicating that Bondi was a working man's suburb. Note the rugby league game is between the Eastern Suburbs Tricolours and the Newtown Blue-bags. Nowadays, the pub is the haunt of a myriad of backpackers from NZ, the UK and Ireland.
