Yes, the chappies in your tram photo look far from happy!

I'd forgotten our Victorian state government donated a couple of trams to San Francisco. I didn't notice them when I visited San Francisco in 1996. Over there, they are pulled by underground cables and travel on the right-hand side of the road. Here, they are powered by overhead electricity wires and travel on the left. Many decades ago, Melbourne used to have cable trams, including the southern hemisphere's first one, which ran between Doncaster and my suburb Box Hill. Up until a few decades ago, Sydney also had trams.
