Blantyre Tram

Gordon Cook recently shared this wonderful photo of a Blantyre Tram. I haven’t seen this one before, so hopefully it’s new for you too.

I wasn’t able to work the location out, but I’m suspecting its around the former Priory Bridge tram stop. The treeline matches up pretty well to a photo I recently posted.

As for dates, I think its 1910s or 1920s. These trams look fairly evolved, covered for passengers and with weather protection for the driver. Whatever is going on here, it was a busy day with many passengers on board.
