The Dutton Park Tram Terminus was actually in the suburb of Annerley. A tramline had been extended from Highgate Hill to Dutton Park in 1901, and the subsequent efforts of the Brisbane Tramway Company to turn the recreation reserve at Dutton Park into a leisure resort during 1908-15 played a great part in boosting the popularity of the locale. The last electric tram in Brisbane ran on 13 April 1969.
