Ladies in Black is set in Sydney in the summer of 1959, against the backdrop of Australia's cultural awakening, breakdown of class structures, and liberation of women. It tells the coming-of-age story of suburban schoolgirl Lisa, who while waiting for her final high school exam results with dreams of going to the University of Sydney, takes a summer job at a large department store. Here she works side-by-side with a group of saleswomen who open her eyes to a world beyond her sheltered existence, and foster her metamorphosis.

Daughter Lisa Miles (Angourie Rice) is trying to get her dad (Shane Jacobson) to sign her application form dated Saturday 12-12-1959 to apply for a Commonwealth Scholarship to pay for her entire university education, whilst her distracted dad is watching horse racing on their television.

While I am looking forward to the movie the shorts I have seen shows trams in Sydney in 1959. Here are some facts.
Pitt Street's last tram ran in the early hours of 29 September 1957.
The Labor government removed the tracks in 1958, and that the tracks were covered with tar to prevent ever being re-used.
Sydney's electric tram fleet were said to be loved by passengers and tram crews alike, but were all removed from service by 1958.
On the 25 February 1961, Sydney's last electric trams operated on the La Perouse and Maroubra Beach lines.
I rode on these trams and I loved them, however there were no trams in the CBD of Sydney in 1959.
The Bennelong Point Tram Depot was also known as The Fort Macquarie Tram Depot and was demolished in 1958, and formal construction of the Opera House began in March, 1959.
