Beamish Open-Air Museum
Beamish Open-Air Museum
One of the most imaginative museum projects in Britain is the Beamish Museum, where aspects of life forgotten by many and unknown to the younger generation have been re-created. The tram, No 264, hails from Sheffield, and is of a type known as an 'Open Balcony' car. Such cars were very popular in many British cities (and would be now, if smoking were allowed on the balcony!) but by the 1940s were regarded as old-fashioned, and either scrapped or closed in at the ends. Bradford was the last city to operate this type of tram, which lasted there until 1950.
