Transport of Delight

Blackpool trams

The first photographs on this gallery were taken on a visit on 19th
July 1961 before the service withdrawals of the early 1960s began.

However, more recently, I discovered in my archives a small number
of photographs taken during a previous visit on 17th September 1959
and these have now been placed in a new section at
the beginning of the site.

Colour photographs: July 1961

These photographs were among my very early attempts at colour and
were the last 12 on a film which I had already started. They were taken
on Agfa CT18 using a 35mm Ilford Sportsman. The red tends to
deteriorate over time; this was a fault of this particular film.
Unfortunately, my original notes have disappeared so that
most of the cars are unidentified.
