Horse-drawn tram, Greater Manchester Museum of Transport

Horse-drawn carriages and trams are found in museum collections across the country. As moving objects in static displays they can be difficult to interpret. So I was commissioned by Staffordshire Archives and Heritage (and funded by Arts Council England) to create A Guide to Interpreting Horse Drawn Carriages in Museum Collections. If you're new to carriages and are wondering how to display them, this is a ready reference interpretation guide for you.

This tram was in service in Manchester from 1890 until the First World War and is now on display at the Museum of Transport, Greater Manchester.
