Designed and built by Magnus Volk, the ‘pioneer’ or ‘Daddy Long Legs’ as it was popularly known served the Brighton and Rottingdean seashore electric railway between 1896 and 1901. Propulsion was by electric motor and due to regulations then in place, a qualified sea captain was on board at all times, and the car was provided with lifeboats and other safety measures. The tramcar ran on stilts that were about 24 feet above the sea bed. The railway was fairly short lived. It opened in 1896, but ceased to operate in 1901 when the council were introducing more sea defences along the coast and wanted to build groynes out into the sea.
Size: 150x150mm and white envelope. Protected by a biodegradable cello bag. Please dispose of packaging and card responsibly.
Printed on FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) paper supplied by UK suppliers.

Our card supplier has always taken environmental concerns seriously, as they print solely on HP Indigo Digital Presses our Pre Press Department is able to be entirely digital as there are no printing plates required for the printing process. All empty ink cans from the presses are re-cycled as is the small amount of waste imaging oil resulting from the printing process. In addition all replacement parts are also returned to the printer’s manufacturer for recycling. All waste paper and board is collected for recycling.
* The colours you see on your screen may not look exactly the same as the actual print. This is because every computer, Smart phone and iPad screen is configured differently. Hopefully you will think the card looks even more beautiful in real life
