Tram 120 is one of four new build in 1900/1901 by the local company A Constructora. The design however was of an existing mule tram type, of which a number were electrified. The number, above 100, proves that the photo was not made before 1907. As the tram does not have a route number, the photo is not made later as 1911.
In the background are the Igreja and Torre dos Clerigos. In the foreground is an ox-car, the contemporary mode of freight transport.
