Tramscape Tramway Photographs


Heliopolis, Cairo, Egypt : 1998
Views of the "Heliopolis Metro", the extensive tramway system in the city of Heliopolis, a north-eastern suburb of Egypt's capital city, Cairo. First established as a "new town" at the end of the nineteenth century, Heliopolis has many wide boulevards which have allowed the trams to run on central reservations for much of their routes and the more spacious and less hectic environment has ensured that trams continue in operation whilst the lines in central Cairo have been closed.
