Tram Rides through Nottingham
Filmmakers Mitchell and Kenyon conduct an evocative ride through Edwardian Nottingham.
This fascinating record of Edwardian Nottingham was filmed from the driver's platform of a tram on a single journey through the city centre between its two main stations. The sequence follows the same route as today's Nottingham Express Transit tramway, taking the viewer along Listergate and Wheelergate into Old Market Square before turning right into Long Row and on into Queen Street.
