Dumped amongst a pile of soil and debris near to one of the new Industrial Units on site, i noticed this old Brick sitting there, which origionates from inside the Tram Depot and still has its White paint on it to ! Sadly that is all that's left on site of Foleshill Tram Depot now, "JUST ONE BRICK" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!lol.

A view of the now finished former Foleshill Tram Depot site, as seen last Saturday afternoon ! (Be good if "Presbus Publishing" could rent out one of those units, especially numbers 4A or 4B, as they stand exactly on the spot where the Tram Depot Building itself once stood !).

A view looking down the former Tram Depot yard towards the Foleshill Road, with my back towards new Industrial Units 4A & 4B. The spot where i'm standing here, would be between a quarter and halfway inside the origional Tram Depot Building itself, had it still been standing ? I have to admit, that it sure is horrible seeing the Track & Cobble Stones all gone from there now !!! Had they known about the site being dug up, i wonder if the Tram Museum at Crich could have possibly stepped in to help save and salvage anything ???. (Sadly, that we'll never know, but i've done what i could myself ?).

It is still there, couldn't see it due to the plants, which have now been cleared away.
