The Metrolink system had been running for over a year when this photograph was taken, which shows a car receding from the camera on its way to Piccadilly. When Metrolink first began, he word 'tram' was banned, as it was thought to have negative connotations dating back to the old worn-out Manchester double deckers which had groaned their last in 1949. But the Manchester public were used to calling a spade, a spade. They know what a tram was, and called them trams from the first. Gradually the company caved in, and eventually used the T-word in their own publicity.
