Tram Glasgow

Tram Glasgow

Bringing a little colour to a rainy day in Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street Standard tram makes its way East closely pursued by an Albion eight-wheeled tanker Guinness a brew drunk with a whisky chaser that cheered many a heart in the grim surroundings of Glasgow’s tenements.

For 90 years from 1872 to 1962 the trams of Scotland’s largest, some would say finest, city (unless you are a native of Edinburgh) served Glaswegians faithfully. Sadly they were discarded for more “efficient” forms of public transport in the decade that due to prejudice destroyed forever a lot of what was good about Britain, however Glasgow’s trams are still fondly remembered by all those old enough to have used them.
