Comments Photographs of the Guernsey Tramways are relatively plentiful (see link). Although uniforms were certainly worn during the electric era, marked buttons have yet come to light, suggesting that the buttons were either plain, or that they are not easily identifiable (e.g. they bear script letters or a monogram of some description).
