Gallery 857: Picture in Time Special - Blackpool Streamlined trams 70th anniversary 2004

In September 2014 with Blackpool's iconic English Electric streamlined trams (Balloons, Boats and Railcoaches) celebrating their 70th anniversary a weekend of special events were held including a Cavalcade and depot open day. In this Picture in Time special we head back to the fortnight surrounding these events featuring the trams in service as well as taking a look at the aforementioned special events. Trams which haven't been seen in service for some time and long forgotten liveries are included as we remember a time when the tramway was very different to that we see today.
