Comments Although numerous photographs show staff wearing uniforms (see link), marked buttons have yet to come to light. The most likely explanation for this is that the buttons were either unmarked (i.e. they were plain) or alternatively, that they bore initials or a monogram of some kind, which is not easily identifiable as an issue of the STCo.

Edmundson's Electricity Corporation was also the parent company of the Urban Electric Supply Company, which itself owned the small provincial tramway systems in Glossop (see link) and Camborne/Redruth (see link).
