Don't rob this tram!
A celluloid one penny token for use on the Manchester Corporation’s trams. Tokens like this could only be used for travel on the trams. Made of plastic, they were light and easy to carry in large numbers. Security for staff carrying the tokens back to the depot at the end of the day was not a problem because they could only be used for travel and they were not of interest to criminals. Manchester Corporation’s trams thrived up to the First World War. The last Corporation service ran in 1949.ASK AN EXPERT
