Nostalgia: Open-top tram, Falsgrave

An open top-tram is pictured in Falsgrave heading towards Scalby Road where the tram depot was between Hampton Road and Wykeham Street.

When Scarborough’s electric trams started operating they were an instant success: in their first two and half days 15 open-top cars carried 22,000 passengers on five basic routes for one or twopenny fares.
