    This series comprises signed reports and memoranda from H.A. Wilcox, General Manager, to the Tramway Board (VA 2693), its Chairman and Secretary. The reports include weekly reports on income, service stoppages, accidents etc and other reports on a variety of tramway concerns including property, efficiency, personnel/wages, tram routes etc.

    The P1 consignment comprises two bundles arranged chronologically by date of item, from back to front of the bundles. Both bundles have a different date range which, taken together, completely span the period the Tramway Board existed, that is, July 1916 to October 1919.

    Most documents dated up to 28 March 1919 have been numbered sequentially, from 1 to 374, in blue pencil. Where a report includes attachments the attachments were not numbered. The numbers were presumably imposed to assist in indexing the reports, however, no index has been located.
