Foleshill circa 1939

In 1926, tram route 2 ran from Foleshill depot to Broadgate.  The tram wires are doubled, which suggests a later date than the picture of tram 58.  The white bumper probably indicates wartime, although the it is difficult to see whether or not there is a headlamp mask.  Tram 43 is even further North than Tram 58.  A goods train can be seen passing over the Longford railway bridge to the North of the tram.  From the position of the trolley, the tram has just arrived at the terminus.
