Tram crossing Bainsford Bridge

Postcard addressed to Miss M Smith showing a tramcar travelling south on Bainsford Bridge. The cantilever gantry supporting the overhead power cables is on the north bank. The tram conductor is adjusting the trolley which picks up the electrical power from the overhead cable.

The power for the overhead cables on the bridge was separate from the power to the cables on either side, so that it was automatically disconnected when the bridge was opened. This may be why the conductor has had to adjust the trolley.
