A Melbourne Cable Car

June 16, 2010

A Great Picture of an old and often forgotten Melbourne Cable Car.

I was lucky enough to visit the Melbourne Museum recently to attend the Titanic the The Artefact Exhibition This special event is being held at multiple venues around the world and I truly recommend you make your way along to an exhibition near you as it is truly astounding.

Being in Melbourne I obviously attended the Melbourne Museum, although I had been earlier tempted to attend the Titanic Exhibition at the Luxor Casino, Las Vegas, however this image is from a vastly different Melbourne display , the Melbourne Exhibition that is also included with admission ticket to the Titanic expo, a great day for family and friends alike.

Melbourne Museum explores life in Victoria, from our natural environment to our culture and history.

Located in Carlton Gardens, opposite the historic Royal Exhibition Building, the award-winning Melbourne Museum houses a permanent collection in eight galleries, including one just for children.

Highlights include a complete skeleton of a blue whale, the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre, a living rainforest, the racehorse Phar Lap and an IMAX theatre on site. Major international exhibitions are presented in the Touring Hall.

Photography is not permitted at the Titanic Expo which is annoying as there was so many wonderful artefact’s that I would have dearly loved to photograph and share , but alas , I was not permitted and recommend that if you are interested that you attend yourself its is running from the 14th May through to October 2010 at the Melbourne Museum details here Titanic: The Artefact Exhibition .

I did purchase a mouse pad and so here is the photo

    The Titanic exhibition is wonderful isn’t it? On the subject of cable cars – you can pick up a copy of a great documentary on DVD on Melbourne’s Cable Car system at Melbourne’s Gold Museum.

    It contains extensive,rare footage from the 1920’s-30s of the cars and depots and was taken by a young boy who luckily for us was fortunate enough to own a hand held film camera. There is even some colour footage from the era. Lovely stuff.
