photoblog image Tram Number 22 at Crich Tramway Museum

Tram Number 22 at Crich Tramway Museum


Glasgow Corporation Tram Number 22

Built in 1922 and withdrawn from active service at the end of 1960, No.22 operated nearly four thousand miles at the Glasgow Garden Festival in 1988.

Seen here during the 1940s Weekend at Crich, hence people standing around with guns and other lethal weapons.

A selection of other trams may be found on my
Flickr site..

I think they used to call these "boneshakers" Les

It LOOKS 1940s, Les. Congratulations.
Les Auld: Except for the loudspeakers as Mike has pointed out, thanks for the comment Ginnie.

very vintage
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment, appreciate it.
How elegant it looks, and how charming the 1940's hard men seem. Perfect treatment Les - only the loudspeaker gives the game away.
Les Auld: You know how it is Mike, you take care to wait for the right moment but always forget something. Thanks for the comment.

This is a wonderful picture, I think B&W is very well chosen.
This is a great 'Golden Oldy'
Les Auld: Thanks Astrid, glad you like it.
Terrific capture Les..Are they wooden block roads or stone?
Les Auld: Stone cobbles Ron, and you can feel everyone through the soles of your shoes. Thanks for the comment.
It's so good in B&W Les, it looks quite old.
Les Auld: Thanks brian, it is pretty ancient.
Great conversion Les, it really suits. I bet its a bumpy ride smile
Les Auld: Rickety to say the least Linda, thanks for the comment.

You had your lethal weapon trained at an excellent angle. Guy down there will not get near as good a picture.
Les Auld: It was a good snipers position Louis, thanks for the comment.
This is lovely Les, great tones and a very interesting looking tram
Les Auld: Just one of many there Pamela, thanks for the comment.
