I thought I'd keep these separate as they're not SVR, but still of interest. Trams ran between Kidderminster and Stourport from 1898 to 1929.
Mostly found without captions or credits on closed Facebook groups.

I need to organise these photos like the others.
In the mean time, here's another undated one of Bridge Street, Stourport.

Undated, presumably the first day of operation, 1898.
Quote:
"In 1898 the 1st trams came trundling into Stourport.
Isaac Wedley said that everyone went wild on that day, with crowds waiting and queuing all day long. It was impossible to have a proper timetable as the trams were always rammed with people to its full capacity as soon as they arrived back at the Kidderminster terminus. During its 1st year, The Electric Tramway Company carried 753,500 passengers. The trams ran daily ,the first one leaving at 5.30am and the last one at 11.30pm
