    This folder is a collection of annual, quarterly and in some cases monthly reports on the operations of the Northcote Municipal Tramways (formerly known as the Northcote Cable Tramways).

    Each report gives a summary of the revenue raised and operating expenses of the tramway for the year, quarter or month. Each also includes a statistical summary of the number of car miles covered, the number of passengers, the amount of water and fuel used and the cost of and revenue from tramway operations per car mile and per passenger. A statement of the Tramways' capital account is also included.

    The information is summarized over many different periods of time, monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and yearly. Between them, these provide a picture of the scale and progress of the Tramways Operations from June 1916 until February 1st, 1920, at which time the Melbourne and Metropolitan Tramways Board took over responsibility for the operation of tramways in the Northcote Municipality.
