Tramscape Tramway Cities     and     paddlesteamers.info

For tramway photographs and for  paddle steamer informationTramscape's websites are possibly the finest on the internet.

Gordon Stewart has an eye for the best in tramway photography and travels regularly throughout Europe to create what is perhaps the finest tramway photograph resource on the internet. Although trams are the focal point and common thread throughout, it is where they are running which provides the diversity and interest in his photos. As well as city centres with their grand architecture, Gordon takes you to less well-known suburbs to give a real feel for the tramway city. Trams bring streets to life and Gordon aims to capture this with attractive and vibrant views of the growing number of cities which look and feel all the better for having tramways.

Gordon is keen to promote paddle steamers, and educate the public into their historical significance, both objects of the UK's Paddle Steamer Preservation Society of which he is a member. He has created what is probably the internet's most comprehensive database of excursion paddle steamers worldwide, in operation, statically preserved and those currently derelict. There is also an extensive historical database. The database is illustrated by Gordon's own photography (of which there is a full archive) and images kindly supplied for publication by his worldwide correspondents.
Tramscape also presents Clyde Turbine Steamers - a special review of the turbine excursion ships which sailed alongside the paddle steamers on the Clyde
