|VHS Cassette (also available as DVD-R Video). The fall & rise of the Sheffield tram. This video celebrates both the new light rai! system as well as the former tramway closed in 1960. Relive memories through a mix of colour & black & white film of the old double-deckers on The Moor & Fargate; passing the Telegraph building, war-damaged Burton's & C&A's; turning through Fitzalan Square; journeying along Waingate, Lady's Bridge and the Wicker. In the 50's, sway into suburban Millhouses, Beauchief, Abbey Lane & Woodseats; climb up the famous 'hilly' lines to Meadowhead, Ecclesall, Crookes, Walkley, Sheffield Lane Top, Handsworth & Manor Top; enter the grime & gloom of Brightside, Tinsley & Neepsend; speed out to the United & Wednesday grounds. Soak up the rain-lashed funeral rites of October 1960. Follow the light rail renaissance of the 1990's. Some intriguing 'then & now' sequences. Highlights - a recently-discovered film of a tram journey made in 1901 along The Moor, High Street & Haymarket: bustling activity in the 20's & 30's; war-time devastation; the old trams that 'escaped'|
