Long Causeway c.1912

A nice old view of Long Causeway showing the tram lines heading down Westgate (right) and Midgate (left). The approaching Walton tram will be taking the Westgate turn where it will head out along Lincoln Road.

The wide expanse of Long Causeway owes much to a stream that once flowed down the centre of its course, forcing separate tracks to be built on either side ….. once the stream was filled in, it resulted in the wide route we know today.
