The first tramway in Lisbon entered service on 17 November 1873, as a horsecar line. On 30 August 1901, Lisbon's first electric tramway commenced operations. Within a year, all of the city's tramways had been converted to electric traction.
Up until 1959, the network of lines was further developed, and in that year it reached its greatest extent. At that time, there was a total of 27 tram lines in Lisbon, of which six operated as circle lines. As the circle lines operated in both clockwise and anticlockwise directions, each with its own route number, it is more correct to speak of a total of 24 tram routes, all of them running on 900 mm (2 ft 11 7⁄16 in) narrow gauge tram lines.[wikipedia]

I have walked this street and watched this type of bus go by .... nice view in the evening just after a rain. Adds a whole new mood and dimension to the scene. Nice point of view ... great color. Well done!

Bardzo ładne nocne zdjęcie z tego mitycznego miasta, do którego, w niedługim czasie też się udam. W każdym razie jest ono w moich podróżniczych planach.

A very nice view of the city and this quaint old tram, what we could perhaps consider the veins of the city, getting people around in a calm and pleasing way. I like the lead in from the tracks and also the well illuminated building at the end of the street, the whole scene has excellent depth.
All the best
