I know nothing about trams, other than I can remember riding on them here in Birmingham and in Dundee in Scotland when I was child I did the trip to the Lickey Hills many times as a child I think if I remember correctly the fare at the time was 4d from Pebble Mill to the Terminus at Rednal.


The photo I have attached is supposedly the first stream tram in Birmingham and was taken in 1882. As it's marked Aston it might even have been a forerunner of your photo which looks to be near Salford Bridge at the northern end of Aston.
