Memory Lane: Ripley Tram

It looks like many people had packed Ripley town centre for the arrival of the first tram to reach these parts.

We think this was taken in 1913 when the tram route went all the way to Nottingham, via Langley Mill, Eastwood and Kimberley. At the time this would be been a huge event.
