Hartlepools Steam Tramways

The Hartlepools Steam Tramways Company was an extremely impecunious operation, underfinanced and servicing an area suffering severe economic depression, a combination which led to its eventual bancruptcy (and closure) after six-and-a-half years. Photographs depicting staff appear not to have survived, so it is currently impossible to say whether or not they were issued uniforms, though given the struggles of the company, one would have thought not.
