A photograph of a black and white postcard showing the first London United Tramways electric tram arriving in Wimbledon. It is entitled 'Wimbledon's First Tram. Oh what a surprise!' The tram is preceded by a man waving a flag; a horse bus and motor car are forced to brake, and pedestrians, including a policeman, faint at the sight. The introduction of an electric tram service to Wimbledon was long delayed through disagreements with the local council. Copy of b/w cartoon on postcard.
