Tram Tuesday - More from the Côte d'Azur

What I would give to be able to travel back in time and ride on the French Riviera's tram system through Nice, Monte Carlo and surrounding towns! Here are two views of the trams emerging out of tunnels. The contrast of the tunnels, the sweeping ocean views, and the rugged coastline must have been breathtaking.

Here are the backs of the cards in the same order. The second one was written in German and sent to someone in Kaltenhausen, Germany. If someone can decipher that wicked Suetterlin writing, please let me know.

Come back next week for some spectacular views of trams in Le Cannet.


  1. That first postcard reminds me of views in my own part of northern Japan. Not trams, but local trains that run through tunnel after tunnel after tunnel along the Japan Sea Coast. Unfortunately, we don't have anything as cozy-looking as a white fence along the tracks though.

  2. quite a ride it must have been...
