Substation No. 8 Impress Printmakers
Impress Printmakers Studio and Gallery is a community-based, open-access printmaking studio housed in the former Brisbane City Council Tramway Substation No. 8 in Kedron. The substation serviced Brisbane’s tramways between 1937 and 1969.
Electric trams were the main way to traverse the city from 1897 to 1969. Now simply remembered as ‘the trams’, during their service they were known by more colourful names such as matchbox trams, jumping jacks, droppies, iron dukes and the phoenix trams. The phoenix trams were eight trams built from parts salvaged after a 1962 fire at the Paddington tram depot, in which 65 trams were destroyed.
