Reader's letter: Memories sought
Remember when trams ran along our local streets? Did you have friends, family, ancestors who worked on these routes or in the depots?
Do you have or know of any tram memorabilia — anything from old trams used as sheds or chicken houses to timetables or even tickets?
Do you have photographs you would like to share?
Do you have any memories of the trams, I’m particularly interested in the people who worked on them. Did you get that bicycle wheel stuck in the trackway? Did you see or know of an accident, have an amusing or sad story to tell? Did the tram play an important part in you or your family’s life?
If you can answer yes to any of these questions, I’d like to hear from you. I’m researching my new book looking at the old trams.
Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07562 653565. You just may have exactly what I’m looking for. — ANTHONY POULTON-SMITH, Amington, Tamworth.
