Old Travel Photograph Priory Place Craigie Perth Scotland

Old travel photograph of a horse drawn Tram, houses and people on Priory Place in Craigie, Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. It was on September 17th 1895 that the Perth and District Tramways Company officially opened the line from the rapidly expanding village of Scone to Glasgow Road, Perth. The trams were drawn by pairs of horses, the service ran at half hour intervals and the fare was 3d for the complete journey from Rose Terrace to Scone. The service was sufficiently successful for the frequency to be soon increased to once every twenty minutes and within a year new tracks were constructed to Priory Place in Craigie via King Street, and St Leonard’s Bank to Cherrybank from Rose Terrace, and to Dunkeld Road via Barrack Street.
