Trams on Deansgate, Manchester, about 1920. Trams were first used in Britain in the 1850s in Liverpool. Early trams were pulled by horses although some trams were steam driven. By the 1880s electric tramways were being developed and by the First World War all large towns and cities had tram systems, usually run by the town or city council. They mainly carried passengers although some also carried freight.
