Horse trams were a feature of the old north coastal towns, taking passengers and cargo from the jetties to the townships.
This booklet has a page or so of text describing the horse tramways of each of Rottnest, Carnarvon, Onslow, Roebourne-Cossack, Broome and Derby, followed by photographs. There is a bonus photo at the Sons of Gwalia mine.
Although a number of these photographs could be described as “well known”, there are many lesser known (or even unknown) photographs.
