  • Thanks Jan – I am interested where he got the photo from – there seems to be a lot of high buildings around

  • I will ask him Dave. Perhaps the picture was taken off the island or from an odd angle making the pictures higher than they really were.

The vehicle pictured is Type 19 horse hauled tram car for 12 passengers from the Monorail Portable Railway Company brochure of 1898, reproduced in the special edition courtesy of the Guidhall Library, City of London.
