Photo of the Day Saturday 9th February 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day…”The first to apologise is the bravest, the first to forgive is the strongest, the first to forget is the happiest”.
“The only real mistake is the one that we learn nothing from”.
Melbourne, Australia and St. Petersburg, Russia have the largest tram systems in the world, but the photo today shows a preserved tram in the southern Swedish city of Malmo. Interesting to read that at one time, Milan had hearse trams which were used for funerals up until 1920. Also, at one time, Melbourne had a dog car tram, which was used to transport dogs to the showgrounds. As well as the usual restaurant trams, they have also been used as a mobile library ((Munchen, Germany) until 1970, and also as cargo trams. Amsterdam has again experimented with using trams for moving goods inside the city. And a few cities still use double-decker trams, such as Hong Kong.
