This hipped-roof, pavilion, waiting shelter shed was designed by Brisbane City Council was designed in the early 1920s by Council’s City Engineer Frank Costello. The shelter was a component of the Annerley tramline that was extended to Moorooka in 1937 and then to Salisbury in World War Two. This shelter serviced the Diamantina Hospital for Chronic Diseases (opened 1901) that became the South Brisbane General Hospital in 1943. The tram line was still in operation in 1956 when a new 800-bed hospital was constructed in the grounds of the South Brisbane Hospital. The tram shelter continued to serve the needs of this new hospital when it was renamed the Princess Alexandria Hospital in 1960. The Brisbane City Council announced that it would cease running trams by March 1969. The former tram shelter has been reutilised to support Council’s bus services.
