Blackrock and Kingstown Tramway

Although the Blackrock and Kingstown Tramway Company operated horse trams for some 8 years prior to its take-over by the grandly titled Imperial Tramways Company in 1893, there is precious little in the way of documentary evidence to say that it ever existed, and furthermore, it would appear that not a single photograph has survived. The line actually joined two disconnected and differently gauged sections of the Dublin Southern District Tramway, eventually selling out to the latter's parent company - the ITCo - as a prelude to electrification and relaying (to a single gauge) of the whole line from Dublin to Dalkey. It is currently unclear whether staff wore uniforms, though given the dearth of surviving material, this may never be known.
