Comment The horse tramway was purchased from its owners (Bath Road Car & Tramways Co Ltd) in 1902 as a prelude to electrification, the last horse car running on the 25th July 1902. Although the purchaser was Bath Corporation, the transaction was actually carried out on behalf of the promoters of Bath Electric Tramways Ltd.
