Comment I have no firm evidence that this pattern of button was an issue of Middlesbrough Corporation Tramways, though it is frequently identified as such. Note that the remainder of the MS&TET system, i.e., that outside the Middlesbrough Corporation boundary, was taken over - at the same time - and run as a joint concern by the corporations of Stockon-on-Tees and Thornaby (see link)
