  1. This was at about the time that trams finished running in London. The last tram ran in July 1952 The track stayed in place for a number of years and I recall it being lifted, causing much disruption. There was no overhead wire on this section, the current being picked up by a shoe running in a trough below the level of the road. London’s tramways had been battered during the war and it was cheaper to replace them with diesel buses. Considering the city’s traffic now, one wonders if it was a wise decision! This particular tram was running towards Tooting
