About this image
The horse tram operated on the Market Place - Hyson Green - Basford route. Cock horses and their lads waited at a stand near the old pot market at the Beastmarket Hill end of Market Square. The cock horse would wait to take the next tram up Derby Road. Two horses could pull trams easily on the flat, but it required the assistance of another heavier horse to pull them up the steep incline of Derby Road. See NTGM008382.
