Laying Tram Tracks at Lee Green, 1907





The electric trams from Lewisham to Lee Green began operating in May 1907.

As this photograph shows, laying the tracks had caused considerable disruption. The trams terminated here at Lee Green until 1920 when they were extended to Eltham Hill.

Fares on trams were cheaper than on trains, which meant that more people could afford to live in Lee and travel to work.
