A view looking north along The Parade in Royal Leamington Spa, with the clock tower of the Town Hall to the right of frame. The Leamington & Warwick Tramways & Omnibus Company operated a tramway service between Warwick and Leamington Spa between 1881 and 1930. The trams were pulled by horses until 1905 which explains why there are tram lines in the road but no overhead wires carrying electricity and helps to date the photograph.
