This photograph, taken in the 1920s shows one one of the Corporation's four-wheel trams "at rest" on Aldersbrook Road, just past the City of London cemetary. The tram sports the Borough coat of arms on the waiste board. Originally, the tram tracks went about 20 feet further along the road, but the section was eventually abandoned.
