The tram was built in 1914 to seat up to 40 people, and was used on Manchester Corporation's Route 53, where double deck trams were unable to operate. It is seen here near the park's entrance gates in Middleton Road.

This photograph was taken by my late father, when he was in his eighties, and on what proved to be his final visit to his home city. It is strange to think that, as a boy and a young man, he must often have seen this tram trundling along the Manchester streets, and maybe he even rode on it. Unfortunately my father kept very few negatives, so I have done my best to scan the small print which survives as accurately as I can.
