NSW Government Railway and Tramway Honour Board Back to Search

Normal capture  2

Details

Location Eddy Avenue, Haymarket, City of Sydney - New South Wales, Australia
Type Honour Board
Description

The board was created over a number of years and comprises eight discrete cabinets. The first was unveiled with some ceremony on Sunday 12 March 1916. A second identical cabinet was erected, probably towards the end of 1916, as casualty lists grew, though no precise date or any unveiling ceremony is known. It is guessed that at this time the original single board was re-located from some other position on the Grand Concourse and the now two boards were erected in their present position, opposite the train indicator board, outside the State Booking Office.

Early in 1918 a further two identical cabinets were made and erected beside the existing pair, on the columns between the windows of the booking office.
