Oldham Clippies.

Three Oldham Clippies from WW1

This photo of three Oldham Clippies was restored a long time back for someone but I never posted it up due to having done so many similar ones before. I came across it again recently and thought it so captivating it deserved a place on my website.
If I recall correctly the three ladies worked for Oldham trams around 1916 during the First World War. I’m sure enthusiasts could give an exact date, what they are wearing and what route they worked on, unfortunately I can’t do that but the photo is lovely. Oddly enough I saw a photo posted on Facebook recently which showed the lady on the right posing on her own, not taken on the same day but I still recognised her though she is a little younger in this one of mine.
It wasn’t mush of a restoration, just enough to tidy it up and give it a bit more vibrance, hope you like it.
