Letter: Transported back in time by a photograph

Click to follow
Sir: I have cut out the fine photograph of Peter Fagg's restoration of a horse-drawn tram for the London Transport Museum. I myself was born in Deptford; my father drove horse-drawn trams in New Cross, Lewisham High Road and Peckham, between 1909 and 1915. Thereafter, as the family moved north to Scotland, he had the honour of driving the first electric tram, as a motorman in the Aberdeen Corporation Tramways, and did so for 17 years.

Yours faithfully,


London, SW10
