Button description Uniforms not worn

Comment Photos of Birkenhead Tramways Company are unfortunately yet to come to light. The BTCo's successor company, the Birkenhead United tramway, Omnibus and Carriage Co, is however well represented photographically (see link), and these clearly show that staff, with the exception of overcoats, did not wear formal uniforms. It therefore seems highly likely that marked company buttons never existed.
