Photograph of a damaged tram engine in the foreground, a crowd of people and further down the road, other tram parts including a line of carriages. The engine contains wreckage. On the far side of the engine may be an accident train. The crowd includes a number of children as well as a man in a white helmet and trousers.The 25/A tram's direction box displays: ENFIELD and BURWOOD ROAD. The accident probably happened on the Ashfield/ Burwood/ Mortlake/ Cabarita tramway service that operated out of Enfield tram depot. This photograph is in William Ellis' collection of material on railway matters possibly because, from 1898 to 1930, the NSW tramways were under the control of the Railway Commissioners .
