Administrative/Biographical history:

The North Metropolitan Tramways Company operated horse-drawn trams in north and east London. The company was established in the 1860s. In 1896 the London County Council purchased sections of the North Metropolitan Tramways network, although the company continued to operate trams along the lines under a fourteen year lease; as until the passing of the London County Tramways Act, 1896, the Council's powers did not extend to operating a tramway undertaking itself. Once the lease expired the Council fully bought out the company's networks and began direct management of the operation.
