Wiltshire Camera


Loyal Member
Bunderberg queensland
Lee and his wife kindly sent me a couple of books and i have been having a read :biggrin:

The below is from the book "A Wiltshire Camera 1835 - 1914"

Clappen's Corner, Swindon in 1904, when 4 1/2 miles of tramways were opened with a maximum fare of 3d. Conductors were paid 4 1/4d an hour. On the day of the ceremonial opening the first tram to use the line rounded Clappen's Corner too fast and dislodged the trolley head :eek: The town dignitaries were not amused when they had to dismount and board another tram :2fun::2fun:

Thank you Lee and Donnami, im enjoying the books :)
