In the early 1900s, many UK cities, towns and even villages had electric tram services. This one in Dundee, Scotland, shows the driver, an inspector and a very young conductor (ticket seller), all looking very proud of their, probably new, electric tram. Long before the mass-ownership of cars, trams provided an affordable means of travelling to work, shopping and visiting friends and facilitated the growth of suburbs that we are familiar with today. What a shame it’s taken a hundred years for urban planners to rediscover the eco-role of trams.
