Liverpool No.43 Horse Tram



This car operated on the Old Swan-Pier Head route. Much of the body style appears to be from the 1890s although some parts apparently date back to 1879/80, probably constructed at Tramway Road in Aigburth, and Lambeth Road.

Withdrawn in 1900, car 43 then languished for more than 70 years as a summerhouse/potting shed in the garden of a large house in Cressington Park, South Liverpool, before being "discovered". Acquired by the MTPS and moved to Green Lane depot, 43 was restored, the period advertisements paying toward the cost of materials. This car has been on loan to the National Tramway Museum but is now back at Taylor Street.
