Edinburgh Corporation Tramways and Motors


Tram and Bus Routes

Here is the front of an Edinburgh Corporation Map.  The map is not dated but I believe that it was published in 1926.

   The front cover of an Edinburgh Corporation Transport Department Map  -  published around 1928

The folded size of this map(105mm x 145mm) is a little larger than the 1924 map  (100mm x 135mm) but the silhouette on the cover is the same.

The buildings silhouetted against the skyline are:

-  Princes Street

-  National Monument, Calton Hill

-  Nelson Monument, Calton Hill

-  North British Railway Hotel (now Balmoral Hotel)

-  Scott Monument

-  National Gallery of Scotland

R Stewart Pilcher was the Tramways Manager for at least a decade,  up until November 1928, when he moved to become General Manager of the Manchester Corporation trams.
