Trams at Joppa

Here is the meeting of the Edinburgh Cable Car system and the Musselburgh Electric Trams.  Passengers travelling from Edinburgh along the Firth of Forth past Portobello and Joppa to Musselburgh had to change trams at Joppa, until the Edinburg trams were converted to electric operation in 1923.

The Edinburgh Cable Car can be seen (left) with its groove for the cable running between the two tracks.

The single-deck Musselburgh tram is in the background with its pole to receive the electric current.

The Firth of Forth runs parallel to the road, immediately over the wall in the background of this picture.
