Aberdeen – the granite city – was to play host to two electric tramways: the corporation’s services within the city, which survived until 1958, and the short-lived services operated by the Aberdeen Suburban Tramways Co. Acquiring modern trams in the late 1940s, Aberdeen was perceived as one of the safest of British tramways in the post-war years, but even here the diesel bus was to take-over. Now, however, little remains to remind people of this once important form of transport other than historic photographs.
Locations featured include: St Nicholas Street, Castle Street, Union Street, Albyn Place, Bridge of Don, Torry Route, King Street, Bridge of Dee, Pittodrie Loop, Sea Beach, Woodside Route, Rosemount Circle.
