Trams | Bondes

I’ve been thinking about doing thematic posts for a while. This article on The Guardian about the Manchester’s trams – “the UK’s most successful” – reminded me about some images in my archives.

(Birmingham has one line only, to Wolverhampton, which I took once to visit The Public, in West Bromwich. Curiously, Birmingham’s tram is called The Metro)

Trams are quite useful, but can’t beat the charming historical bondes in cities as Rio de Janeiro and Lisbon – a tourist’s cliché, I know!
