Green Goddess

The Liverpool Tramways Company was authorised by Act of Parliament in 1868. It opened in November 1869 and its successors ran trams until 14 September 1957. The system ran from the Pier Head throughout the city.

Liverpool's last tram (No 293) ran from Liverpool's Pier Head to Bowring Park on September 14, 1957.

The car was bought by the National Trolley Museum of Kennebunkport, Maine, U.S.A and shipped via Boston, Massachusetts in 1958. The height of the car and its low loader were too high to go under the bridges of Boston to get onto the highway to Kennebunkport, so special arrangements were made to transport it across Boston Airport and out of the back entrance on to the highway, thus avoiding the low bridges.

Car No 293 is, as of 2006, at the back of a shed at the Museum, and is in poor condition.
