A huge success for electric trams in Liverpool


January 28, 1901
The development of tramway traffic under an electric system in Liverpool has been truly remarkable, and is confidently treated by municipal management as likely to be far greater before its limit is reached. Two and a half years ago the old horse trams carried 38 ½ million passengers. Last year, with 270 electric cars on the lines, the number exceeded 82 ¼ millions. In June 130 more cars are to be running, and the general manager, Mr. Bellamy, estimates 122 million as the total of the year now current.
