Trams in Rossendale - more photos sought.

Want to remove this ad? Please sign in or register for free today.

Peter Fisher has brought together photos from his, mine, Richard J Hargreaves and the late John Davis Collections to form "Rawtenstall Corporation Trams & Buses folder in <SmugMug.com>. Then search "Rawtenstall trams". These are all that are currently known to exist of steam and electric trams in Rawtenstall and Haslingden. We would welcome any further ones known to readers, even it is just the source. We are literally 'scraping-the barrel' in asking for views where just part of a tram can be seen in the background of just a family or general picture. Photos of relatives who worked on the valley's trams, in their uniforms or at work will be given a place in this illustrated local history.

Likewise through this thread, we would welcome any stories of their working lives especially any antedotes. The carriage of a bomb, on the platform of Peter's grandfather's tram from Cloughfold to Rawtenstall police station in WW1, is now well documented.

I know many of you will enjoy the present 11 pages of Peter's folder and we look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Colin Withey.
