Comments The double-headed eagle from the arms of Perth seems distinctly Germanic, though it was in fact also used by the MacDonalds of the Isles.

The name of the department operating the trams and buses was only changed to 'Perth Corporation Transport' on the demise of the trams, i.e, in January 1929.
