This postcard shows Southend tram 42 entering the central boulevard at the southern end of Thorpe Hall Avenue.
42, a Brush "toastrack" car seating 48, was delivered on the 24th July 1914 and used to initiate the circular tour which ran from the Kursaal along the seafront to Thorpe Bay Corner, through the boulevards in Thorpe Hall Avenue and Soutchurch Boulevard, and then back to the Kursaal via Southchurch Road and Soutchurch Avenue.
Thanks to Vivienne for sending the postcard.
