Snapshot Sunday : Tram House

Vanda and I have been looking at some houses together as we plan to buy a new home to share in the not too distant future. One of the homes we went to see was at a place called Verona Sands. The home was very unusual and appealed to the both of us as we have always had a keen interest in trains, trams, ships and cars. This amazing home is made up from two Hobart trams. These trams were once part of Hobart’s tramway network carrying people to and from the city. They are probably about a hundred years old by now. I took a photo of the house on the day which was created using the trams in the 1980s. Before this the trams were used as holiday or fishing shacks. For more information about Hobart’s trams and transport I suggest looking up the Tasmanian Transport Museum or looking on Wikipedia : Trams in Hobart.
