Last Tram souvenir ticket which came with the second hand purchase of the book “The Last Tram” by Charles A. Oakley.  The ticket was purchased on Car 1306 for a journey between Bridgeton Cross and Jamaica Street on 3 September 1962.

This ticket also came with the book and was for a journey between Bridgeton Cross and Johnstone Drive on 15 October 1959 on Car 1090 on route 26.  Johnstone Drive? – Is this the Johnstone Drive in Rutherglen just off Farmeloan Road? – Confirmation welcome please.

Does anyone know what this form is?  It was filled out by Cathie Paton, a conductress working out of Newlands garage/depot on 28 August 1958.  DOES ANYONE KNOW OF CATHIE PATON OR IS RELATED TO HER?

Does anyone remember the Red Licence , or do you still have one?  This one belonged to my father
