Sheffield Tram Conductresses

From the Sheffield Evening Telegraph, 4th June 1915


Women are to be engaged as conductors on the Sheffield trams.  "Fares to the fair" will now be the motto of all passengers, and very nice too.

We do not think there will be any difficulty in working the system.  Chivalrous youths will find it awkward to restrain their offers of a seat to the conductress when they see her standing on the platform, but they must do it.
