A trip to Blackpool on a sunny August afternoonin the later
70s. The purpose - to ride on, and photograph, some of that
town's trams - at that time, the only tramway of its kind in
We drove to Fleetwood - for relative ease of car parking - and,
after taking a snap or two, (and purchasing some very fine fish
and chips) rode the length of the tramway to Starr Gate, then
returned to Blackpool for a peek in the depot at Rigby Road.
I seem to recall a break for liquid refreshments at some stage - I
suspect before the last two pictures - the colour of the light
seems to suggest the shadows were beginning to lengthen by the
time we headed back to Fleetwood
