Wolverhampton Tram 49, 1909
Surviving into preservation after being used as a timber store by a coffin maker in Shropshire, Wolverhampton Tram Number 49 was built in 1909 for use on Wolverhampton Corporation Tramways. Like most Edwardian trams, it was built with an open top deck, but within a few years was modified with a top cover for all-weather protection for the passengers.
