ABC Wednesday: Q is for Queen's Promenade

Queen's Promenade stretches from Blackpool North Shore to Bispham. Dr Neil Clifton's photograph was taken Tuesday, 24 August, 1993 and shows trams near the Cabin. Two 'Balloon' cars are coming southwards, while in the distance, a 'Boat' car is on the northbound track.
At that time the tramlines shared the road with other traffic. Note the position of the bus stops.
My own photograph was taken Monday, 8 April, 2013. The road has been reclaimed and a #12 bus en route to the Pleasure Beach can be seen on the right. The tramlines have been moved to a dedicated track on the left and a new tramstop erected to serve the Cliffs Hotel.
