  • Fantastic! I can see the house where I lived from 1939 to 1953 – corner of Springfield Road and Beaconsfield Road.
    At first, trams went clanking by but they were mercifully replaced by the silent trolley buses in September 1939.
    The tram rails were lain in wooden blocks and when they were taken up the blocks could be scavenged for firewood. A nice task for a seven year-old!
