OFF-TRAM-ROUTE ROSETTES
There are two on Kent Street, between Bathurst and Druitt, one on the corner of Druitt and Kent, and one in Goulburn St., between Sussex and Dixon.

The same method of attachment was used to hold up street lighting. There are two levels of Rosettes on the façade of the YMCA building at Loftus. The high one was for a street light, not suspending the tramway overhead.

I do remember that it used to have street lights that hung between buildings in the city during the late 60's and early 70's until replaced by modern street lighting.

The current exhibition of old Sydney maps at Customs House is worth a visit from tram fans. One of the maps appears to show a siding in Albion Street, off the Crown Street line. Keenan doesn't mention it. Are there any other references to it?
