Electric Cars At Last

A postcard from the Museum's collection, showing the introduction of electric tramcars in Lincoln, previously a horse tram city.

Postmarked Lincoln 4 December 1905 and sent to a Cambridge address.

"You see we have got electric cars at last and they run very well. They get overcrowded sometimes and stop to rest a bit. You will have to come and see them."
