Tramway Hotel is located on the corner of Church Street and St Georges Road in Fitzroy North. It was opened in 1873 by George Baker.” (Only Melbourne Historic Hotels)

“Plain, spartan-like facade typical of Late Colonial architecture; the stepping up of the parapet over the main doorway in this case by a very small pediment is a favourite tool of Victorian Architecture”. (Hotels in Fitzroy up to 1906, Nicola A Piccolo, 1971).
