Historical information

Presentation to D J Irwin, the Depot Foreman at Geelong following the operation of the last tram No. 4 on 24 March 1956. Mr Irwin subsequently became the Depot Foreman in Ballarat. Would appear that the threaded knob is not part of the original conductor's bell as it does not fully screw into the bell housing.


Demonstrates a presentation to depot staff at the time of the closure of the Geelong system.

Physical description

Part of conductors bell - brass fitted with a brass threaded knob.
