traffic in Aitken Street, Wellington, circa 1950

Looking towards the Tinakori Hills in the distance.  A circa 1948 Austin truck on the right, probably a Ford Prefect on the left and a couple of cars from circa 1930.  In the centre are a couple of trusty trams.

For lots more pictures, see the books Wellington Transport Memories and Wellington: a Capital century

By the early 1950's Aitken street was no longer used as a through route, indeed the connection to Molesworth St had or was about to be removed. Aitkin St was used to store trams during off peak times
