Stoke Terminus

Tram 73 stands at the Stoke terminus.  The same telegraph pole with seven cross pieces is visible, although this photograph may date from a few years later because of the later destination box.  The trunk lines ran the whole length of the A428 to Rugby.  When there was a cross wind, the telephone wires would hum with an eerie sound that could be quite alarming when there was no other traffic.  Young Lombardy poplars have been planted on the other side of the hedge.
