In 1858 it was proposed to build a tramway to Smythe's Creek. It was planned to build the terminus on spare ground opposite Tait's Hotel in Mair Street.[1]

Joseph Tait was granted a publican's license for Tait's Hotel in July 1861, and the hotel was described as formerly being the Royal Highlander Hotel.[2]
