Trams I Knew. (28).


Southampton’s Trams.(28).

Southampton  Tram No. 45- Open top-Journey to Floating Bridge.Electric cars ran in Southampton from January 1900 until the end of 1949. No. 45 was purchased by enthusiasts & eventually went to the National Tramways’ Museum for preservation & use by visitors to enjoy rides.  Tram No. 11 was one of the first to pass through the Bargate.  Southampton’s ‘Tram 57 project’ have spent much time & effort to preserve some trams with the object of seeing them again on our City’s streets.      They did pass through the Bargate. Women Conductresses who served the trams in World War 1 .
