Historical information

This was part of an exhibition mounted by the Surrey Hills State Savings Bank in 1976. The original print had a text which was included in our copy print as follows: "EVEN IN 1916, WATER SUPPLIES FOR MANY SURREY HILLS FARMERS AND MARKET GARDENS STILL / CAME FROM THE STAND-PIPE AT THE WARRIGAL ROAD TRAM TERMINUS. PREVIOUSLY WATER WAS / PURCHASED FROM THE VILLAGE TANK AT THE CORNER OF WINDSOR CRESCENT AND UNION ROAD. / THE PRICE WAS 1/- FOR 400 GALLONS."

Physical description

Black and white photo of a horse and water cart in position at the stand-pipe. A man holds the horse's reins and 2 young boys are perched on the cart. In the background is a building that may be a shop with wagons outside and further down the road is a tram.
