GLASGOW TRAM NO.812

A visit to the Tramway Museum at Crich saw ex Glasgow Corporation Tram No.812 in service together with the ex Berlin Tram, I showed at an earlier date, in the background.  Built in 1900 as an open top tram, 812 acquired a top cover with open balconies ten years later and platform vestibules within a further two years.

The classic view at Crich Brian, never seems to change. I'm off to there on Monday for the 1940s weekend.
Brian Walbey: I reckon this bridge was made for photographers Les. Enjoy Monday, the forecast suggests it will be the best day of the weekend.

You slide-scanned pictures have been very interesting, Brian - I see they are almost at an end
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl. Plenty more where they came from, I have upwards of 4 - 5,000 in all plus a few thousand B.& W. negatives, but plenty more to come before I show any more of them at the moment.

The Glasgow system was closed as latye as 1960 I seem to remember. Silly people!

Nice shot
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. They have returned the trams to Nottingham, near us as you know, and are soon going to start a new extension.
They should never been got rid off Brian what a way to to go round our towns and cities.
Brian Walbey: Couldn't agree more Peter, we live not far from Nottingham and they have returned there and are soon starting a further extension to the system.

Oh, this is a fine, proper tram and a beautiful bridge - this all gives us a feel of old times when the people were not in such a hurry like today. I like this scanned photo very much!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. I think that bridge could have been built especially for us photographers.
Very nice!!

Don't they look wonderful - but not so good for aching bones ;o)
Brian Walbey: Yes they are well looked after Mike.
I love this - it just LOOKS European somehow!
Brian Walbey: Well we have an English tram and a German tram in the same picture Elizabeth, can't get much more European than that.
striking image to me, the bricks, the colours, Great Brian!
Brian Walbey: It is a fine heritage museum to visit Juan, they have many working trams, and I think this bridge must have been built especially for photographers smile
superb thing. i have loved trams since my boyhood but double decker trams are unusual to me. everything about this image is perfect; the tram, the lamp post, the cobblestones and the stonework of the bridge. bravo!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush. In the early days of trams, late 1800's and first half of the 1900's most trams were double decker. The modern systems in some of our cities are all single decker though.
