Whilst at the Merseyside Transport Trust Open Day on 9th July I came across and purchased this photo of a horse drawn tram in Birkdale:-
Is this shot taken on Cemetery Road, Southport? Can it be dated by anyone?
Click on the scanned photo to enlarge it
The photo is also amongst my Flickr photos at:-
Here are links to my previous postings about Southport’s long-gone trams:-
Sadly since my May 2014 posting about Southport’s Pier Tram it has also ceased to run and been disposed of. I understand this was said to be the result of it being too heavy for the aging pier.
BTW – Are the 3 chaps in the photo my old friends and Birkdale Ward Councillors, Richard Hands, Simon Shaw and Iain Brodie Brown?:-)))
