Remember the trams?


REMEMBER when trams ran along our local streets? Did you have friends, family, ancestors who worked on these routes - not just on the routes, but in the depots, too.

Do you have or know of any tram memorabili­a - anything from old trams used as sheds or chicken houses to timetables or even tickets? Do you have photograph­s you would like to share?

Do you have any memories of the trams, I’m particular­ly interested in the people who worked on them.

Did you get that bicycle wheel stuck in the trackway? Did you see or know of an accident, have an amusing or sad story to tell?

Did the tram play an important part in you or your family’s life?

If you can answer yes to any of these questions, I’d like to hear from you. I’m researchin­g my new book looking at the old trams, with a particular interest in the people who worked and/or travelled on them.

Drop me a line at anthony_ poulton_smith@hotmail.com or call 07562 653565, you just may have exactly what I’m looking for.
