Broadway, Bexleyheath, 1912

Looking east from the western end of the Broadway, with Christ Church visible on the left-hand side.

The tram service began in Bexleyheath in 1903 and ran from the 'Plume of Feathers', Plumstead, through Welling and Bexleyheath to the Erith boundary at Northumberland Heath, with a short branch to the west side of the junction of Gravel Hill and Erith Road.

This branch was mostly only used for runs to the depot in the Council yard about 400 yards east of the Market Place.

The photograph was taken on 24th September 1912 by W. Strudwick.
