Tynemouth trams carried the magnet and wheel emblem of their parent British Electric Traction company. I still have a magnet and wheel cap badge given to me by a bus conductor in the 1960s. The trams had finished in 1931 but if you got your school bus pass from the office in Northumberland Square it was stamped 'Tynemouth Electric Traction' even in the early '70s. There was also at that time still a bit of old track round the corner in Suez Street where the depot had been.
