Maintaining a Horse-Drawn Tram Car

Cable Car

This photograph is taken from the Lothian Region Transport Collection held by the Edinburgh City Archivist. In this collection it is printed as shown above and is described as a horse drawn tram.

However, the same photograph appears in DLG Hunter's book, Edinburgh's Transport: The Corporation Years, described as a Brown-Marshall vehicle being converted after some 20 years as a cable car to probably give a further 15 years' service as an electric car.
