Type B, electric cross-bench 'toastrack', tram No.38 of the Municipal Tramways Trust. According to a researcher the photograph was taken in Currie Street facing west, adjacent to the large archway entrance to the Adelaide Steamship Company's premises, about 100 metres west from King William Street. The tram is fitted with a destination number box on the roof, introduced on 27 May 1917, the glass above "Glenelg R'ly" (a very unusual destination sign as most cars just said "Railway") is painted black rather than soon afterwards replaced by a metal panel. A researcher has provided the following information: 'Electric trams never ran on the Glenelg Railway (and couldn't, since it had a different track gauge from the tramlines, and electric overhead wires were only installed on what became the Glenelg tram line in 1929). In 1917 all of Adelaide's trams were run by the Mynicipal Tramways Trust (MTT). The 'Glenelg R'l'y' sign referred to its destination - the railway service that departed for Glenelg, going south down King William Street from Victoria Square. The garland of eucalyptus cuttings may indicate the tram's decoration was for Wattle Day, 1st September.'
