Photo 204 appears to be taken in North Terrace, just west of the Railway Station.
In the background, you can see a span of the old Morphett Street Bridge - it was replaced by the current structure in the early 1960s, I think.

It was quite a stylish structure, but was quite narrow - possibly only one lane in each direction, certainly no more than two, so it would be hopelessly inadequate today!

Cheers

Great stuff Trevor !!
Judging on the signage on the windows Valente and Rana operated City-Glenelg.Seems as though there was some competition on that service.I wonder what RBC stood for ??
City-Fullarton must have been Weavers first service.Presumbly he was legislated off that route and relocated to the Southern Suburbs

I'm pretty sure Weaver's first name was Percy.
