Mystery Number 28
– supplied by anonymous
Where is clear, but what happened at Mossley and when?
It certainly attracted a good crowd who look to be Edwardian period.

|This photo was taken on 20th October 1911. The strange wheels, axles and springs are the remains of a tramcar. On that morning about 5.30am the tramcar, packed with early-morning workers, was coming down a steep hill above the station when it got out of control, left its rails and plunged into the railway cutting. Five people in the tram were killed.|

|I have a photo of this scene and the caption states five were killed and four injured.|
