This is a model of a circa 1910 London Transport double decker tram – one of six built in England in the 1970’s. It features open stairs at both ends, a trolley pull on top, and four rolling wheels. There are windows on each side, and the top deck has chairs. Transportation signage is on the ends, and a Lipton’s Tea advertisement features prominently on the sides.

The Kamm Collection contains many examples of tea company advertisements.
