The Bristol Tram Company started business in 1876, and had 7 depots in Bristol of which this is the only one close to its original form, with considerable architectural attention paid to the sheds as well as the show-piece entrance block. Green designed the Tramway Generating Station on Counterslip (qv). (RCHME: Bristol An Architectural Survey of Urban Development Corporation: London: 1991-: 5).
