Vintage Dublin Trams slideshow images

Dublin tram services within the city and suburbs began in 1872. Initially deploying horse drawn carriages by 1901 much of the tram network was electrified. At that time the largest tram operator was Dublin Tramways, following a series of company mergers. From the mid 1920's popularity and profitability of trams declined with the increase in motorised traffic, particularly buses. The last trams in Dublin city ran on July 9, 1949. The Howth Head tram remained the single operating line until 1959.
