Does anyone know anything about the cycling school and skating rink? I spent my first 8 years living just off Milford Place in the Roseberrys and can't imagine where this leisure facility might have been! How fascinating!

As well as the driver, the upstairs passengers too, would have got soaking wet when it rained, while all those below would have sat in perfectly dry conditions. Was there a two tier fare system on the tramways back in those days, as there was on the railways? Can anyone enlighten us?

In answer to Graham's query, the tramways charged the same fare whether you travelled outside, or inside. It wasn't done for ladies to travel on the top deck then, as they might reveal an ankle when ascending the stairs! But is that an intrepid young lady upstairs, just above the driver?
