Old Trams in Digbeth

We’re getting excited about the prospect of trams possibly gracing the streets of Digbeth again, but did you know that there used to be a tram line on Digbeth High Street, connecting with Alcester and Bradford Streets?

Digbeth resident Bev Brown recently sent these old pictures to us, showing double-decker trams quite clearly outside Holy Trinity Church on what is now Old Camp Hill, and turning down Bradford Street with what is now the Abacus Building in the background.
