6MATLOCK URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL CABLE TRAMWAY: An untitled buff coloured 2¼” x 1¼” TRAM TICKET headed “Special Local Tickets : Up Journey Only”. Part of the text reads “This Ticket along with ONE PENNY must be handed to the Conductor, who will issue in exchange a 2d Ticket”. It was, in fact, a coupon torn from a pad, which had initially been purchased by a local resident / ratepayer. The arrangement was introduced in July 1910 and it is believed that this coupon probably dates from around that time, and was almost certainly produced by a local printer. In any case, it precedes December 1917 when the Up fare was increased from 2d to 3d. (1)£55
