Hull Museums – More Tram Logos

Kingston-upon-Hull has an amazing set of City Museums. Entrance is free so there was no reason not to take a look. We managed to find time to visit The Streetlife Museum of Transport and the Hull and East riding Museum (briefly). I certainly hope when we go back we’ll find time to visit some of the others.

The transport museum was amazing with a period street, a carriage ride and a couple of lovely trams. A couple of new tram logos I’d not seen before:

Romans Go Home!

Romans Go Home!

The Hull and East Riding Museum was a little jaunt through history and certainly has some wonderful Roman mosaics and the best Roman street scene I’ve ever seen, complete with graffitti! Slightly more authentically, I should point out that “Cave Canem” made an appearance too.

The Ferens Art Gallery is of course temporarily closed, but we have plans to visit that when it reopens and hopefully then we’ll get a chance to visit some of the other places we’ve not yet seen.

Tram Logos

I recently visited Crich Tramway Museum and had a wonderful day out. Many of the trams had a beautifully detailed logo on the side for whichever area they had served. I don’t think modern public transport is nearly as beautiful as these were. Here are some photographs of those logos. I wonder how many you recognise?

Updated to add a few more from our visit in March 2014.
