Liverpool’s Last Tram and how trams are steadily on the rise in UK cities

rsz_liverpools_last_tram

From an original postcard that I purchased recently. Memories of what Liverpool and indeed many other cities lost when they ditched trams in favour of buses. Of course many cities are reversing the trend (not least because of diesel pollution from buses) and rebuilding their tram network – Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham, Edinburgh etc. Liverpool’s attempt to jump on this tram band wagon sadly failed spectacularly of course! A previous posting of mine refers:-
