Blackrock and Kingstown Tramway

Although the Blackrock and Kingstown Tramway Company operated horse trams for some 8 years — from its opening on the 8th July 1885 to its take-over by the grandly titled Imperial Tramways Company (ITCoLtd) on the 24th August 1893 — there is precious little in the way of documentary evidence to say that it ever existed; 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, selling out to the latter's parent company — the ITCoLtd — 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.
