The proposed route is parallel and in close proximity to the railway and mun icipal tramway. It could not offer such low fares to the constant traveller, and I doubt if many of the mostcnthusiastic supporters of the St. Geor,"n'? Tfniiil tramway would be willing t..,- -.It higher r:i:i' when a lower woul&lt;i®ot|ualiy suffice. It is wrong to hold up Prahrnn-Mnl veni trams as an example for THEY do not rail parallel with an existing ser vice. A service running east and west, bringing ...
