Aberdeen Suburban Tramways
This is tram no. 5 outside the Mannofield depot of the Aberdeen Suburban Tramways.

Inspector Kerr is on the platform and Driver George Cormack is beside him.

This was one of the first trams purchased by the company which started business in 1904. The tram was built by the British Electrical Engineering Co, Loughborough and was one of six delivered in sections by rail to Aberdeen Joint Station in June 1904 before being taken to the depot for assembly.

They were double deck with the upper deck being open topped. The upper deck had 35 seats with 33 below.

The lower deck was split into 3 compartments with the centre one being non-smoking. It had leather upholstery and horsehair padded benches that sat 7 on each side.

The other (smoking) compartments had slatted wooden benches seating 2 to each side. The company ceased running trams in 1927.

Behind tram no. 5 in this image can be seen part of the Aberdeen Corporation Tramways water spraying tramcar.
