The twentieth step in my A-Z of quirky ancestor antics - T is for tram conductress

One of my great aunts, Sarah "Sally" KINGSBURY, was the first female tram conductresses in Blackpool, England. Apparently, she loved this job and it suited her outgoing personality.

Sarah (aka Sally) KINGSBURY
22 September 1881 - 10 July 1967

Thanks to my long-lost cousin, David Kay in the UK, who informed me about this aspect of Sally's interesting life.
