Port Adelaide - Horse Transport
A letter in respect of inherent dangers of "Port Carriers" operating at night is in the Register, 28 April 1868, page 2h:
It was not until the public cried "shame" from the frequent loss of life that
gas lamps were erected on the wharfs at Port Adelaide. Must we shut our eyes
to the necessity of all drays having lights till more life is sacrificed...
The subject of lights on vehicles in the metropolitan area is discussed in
19 April 1872, page 3e and
12 March 1873, page 5a; also see
25 February 1876, page 5c.
