Electric trams were a prominent presence in Adelaide from 1909 to 1958.
The city centre was the focal point where the population congregated for work and leisure. When electric trams were installed in Adelaide,
seven major streets in the city area between the terraces had trams running through them.
North Terrace (east and west).
Grenfell/Currie Streets (east and west).
Wakefield/Grote Streets (east and west).
West Terrace (north and south).
King William Street (north and south) - which was the main tramway artery.
Pulteney/Hanson Streets (north and south).
Hutt Street (to the south).
These city streets served 21 suburban
tram routes throughout the metropolitan area.
