Tram on Midgate

A lovely Edwardian image showing a Newark tram heading along Midgate and about to swing round to the terminus on Long Causeway near Market Place.

On the far left is the “Midgate Glass & China Warehouse” of Somerset born Edmund Gill and his wife Sarah, who were operating from New Road in the 1880s but were in Midgate by 1900.
