Centre-entrance Sunderland tram at Seaburn, in snow at Easter 1953. The tram is No.51, an English Electric streamlined car new to Sunderland in 1938 [83]. There were two routes to Seaburn: via Roker (this one) which ran along the coast road, and via Fulwell, which came close to here along Dykelands Rd. [33] The car to the left of the picture is in Seaburn Terrace, standing outside what was a novelty shop/post office. The building behind and to the right of the tram is the Seaburn Hotel. The iron railings in the foreground surround the entrance to the below-street public conveniences. To the left, on the other side of the road, just out of view is the Seaburn Recreation Park, which can be seen to the left of the tram in n27-9-3 and n27-9-5 (which are the same spot, taken from the same side of the road but from different angles).: photo n27_9_4
