On 4th October of 1913 Mallorca’s first electric tram line was opened, between Sóller and the Port of Sóller.
The cars from 1912 (they were ordered in Carde & Escoriaza in Zaragoza) are stil running. They have numbers from 1 to 3 and their trailers 5 and 6.
On picture is ex-Lisbon tram no.20 which was re-gauged to fit the 914 mm track gauge.

Wonderful photo! I was there a week ago! There were a lot of tourists. It seemed to me that to make such a photo, without the crowds of tourists - it is simply impossible!

Ah, ha, I've been here! And here is one of the old, original trams (No.2) taken at the other end of the tramline in Soller itself.
You have captured this lovely scene perfectly and with some very fine natural colours. The bright orange tram stands out beautifully against the buildings and the framing by the trees is delightful. You have also cleverly put the distant background nicely out of focus and your composition is excellent.
Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

The tram is perfectly positioned in this picture and it adds a very bright and eye-catching colour. A very interesting cityscape and a very interesting note for tram enthusiasts.
