  • Description

    Item title reads: "First Tram To Run In Britain. Brought out to make another trip to demonstrate progress in transport - feature of Birkenhead's Jubilee celebrations."

    Birkenhead

    People stand by a tram, which has 1860 - 1877 on it. Next there is a shot of a stationary 1927 motorbus. People in crinolines and hooped skirts get onto a tram, marked '1902'. It has been decorated with flowers for the celebrations. By contrast a motor bus is washed in a big shed. A washing frame has been set up with hoses directed at all sides of the bus.

    Note: The bus looks as if it's in a very basic form of car wash.
