Notes

Images a and c were loose in a large box in the Deep Springs archives in May 2015; sorted by decade and the more interesting ones scanned by Denis Clark. Also some gathered from online sources and photos taken by Denis Clark 1978. This tramway was never an economic success but has been an object of fascination for generations of Deep Springers, including me - DEC 3/2017.
