Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    This series consists of an account book which was created following the establishment of the Melbourne Tramways Board (VA 2693) in 1916 to record certain expenses claimed by the Board from the Melbourne Tramway and Omnibus Company (VA 2976). Prior to the establishment of the Tramway Board in February 1916, the Melbourne Tramways Trust (VA 2692) had been granted an allowance from the Company of an amount not exceeding 1000 pounds per annum for reimbursement of expenses. This was granted under section 8 of the Melbourne Tramways Trust (Borrowing Powers) Act 1890 (54 Vic., No.1173). A record of the Trust's expenses which were reimbursed by this allowance can be found in VPRS 8123 Cash Book : Trust Expenses (M.T. and O. Company Account) which is a previous series.

    The P1 consignment of this series comprises a single volume which was maintained only until 6 July 1916. It is evident that the allowance from the Company for expenses ceased from this time.

    A record of the final cheques received from the Company can also be found in a ledger account within VPRS 7906 Accounting Records : Secretary's Account. The expense/payment details are also duplicated within the cash books of VPRS 7906 and in VPRS 8126 General Cash Books : Cable Operations.

    The single volume extant has "Account : M.T. and O. Co" on a label on the cover.
