    This series records the minutes of the meetings of the Prahran and Malvern Tramway Trust (VA 2977).

    Minutes record summary details of the general administrative activities of the Trust discussed at meetings, decisions of the Trust on general matters, correspondence received, appointments and contracts made, tenders received reports and expenditure.

    The minutes are arranged chronologically by date of meeting. Each meeting is numbered and the date, time and location of the meetings is recorded. Each set of minutes is signed by the Chairman of the Trust.

    The series is subject indexed by VPRS 7814 Index to Minute Books, however most of unit 6 of the P1 consignment covering the period 6 February 1918 to 29 January 1920 is not indexed.

    Given that unit one of the P1 consignment is numbered "2" and that the agency recording began in 1907 it would be safe to assume there was an earlier volume of minutes which are no longer extant.

    In 1920 the functions of the Prahran and Malvern Tramway Trust passed to the administration of the Melbourne and Metropolitan Tramway Trust (VA 2694).
