The Tram of Rotterdam, Netherlands.
In 1879 horse trams were introduced in Rotterdam. Together with steam trams (since 1881) and horse buses they provided the public transport until about 1906. Electric trams, later supported by buses and the Metro do serve the Rotterdam people until today. On this site you can find a small overview of the history and the different types of rolling stock which existed, or still is in daily use. This vintage postcard shows a tram from the Parkwagens series which was in use between 1913 – 1950.
