This is certainly unique, and genuine, from a pre-WWII R1 Class tram thought to be built in the mid 1930s
Made of wood varnished with shellac. About 36 inches x 13 inches
It, and another matching one, was located above the sliding entrance door to the saloon from the vestibule.
I was intended to be hinged to give access to lighting controls. How it latched closed is not obvious.
In fair condition given its age. One hinge pin is missing,
The item is probably best collected from the shop to avoid any damage in transit, it being an awkward large item
Genuine. These display boards from the front of STA buses have become redundant due to design changes.
They are mostly in good but clearly used condition.
There are four versions:
Waverley, Burwood, Kingsgrove and Tempe depots,
Any number from 000 to 999 can be shown using numerals which swing 180 degrees outward from within the frame.

We have been fortunate to acquire 5 Opal Bus Stop signs from George Street Sydney.
Naturally they are unique and will not be seen again. Buses will never run in George Street once the Light Rail commences
Signs are in very good order with of course some evidence of street exposure.
One side carries the route map, the other has timetables. See photos
Available only for collection at the Museum, unless special transport by courier is arranged by you the buyer
