Additional information

After trams ceased to run in Brisbane on 13 April 1969, the Brisbane Tramway Museum Society was formed, and it opened the Brisbane Tramways Museum in 1972. The honour board came into possession of the society after the closure of the Light Street Depot in Fortitude Valley. A small plaque at the bottom indicates it was manufactured by Chevron Furniture, Woolloongabba.
