Photographer's Note

Babelfish translate:
The trams, initially horse-drawn then electric furrow Lisbon since 1873. Tram 28 is most famous. Built in 1914, it kept its pace of pre-war period, out of yellow sheet and interior wood. He traverses impracticable places by other public transport.

Its way of dream curves the historical heart of Lisbon. At the beginning of Largo back Prazeres, it plunges towards Chiado, district in full change and Baixa, downtown area trading before setting out again with the attack of Alfama, cradle of the fado to arrive blown, at the popular quarters of Graça. Azulejos, commercial of fish, bookshops design, pastelarias, shops and houses picturesque are as many visions of authentic Lisbon.

The whole of the line is a voyage in oneself, a constant expatriation. Tram 28 can slip by to any pace by passing very close to the walls like remaining blocked hours lasting because of a badly parked car. Sentimental and historical small island in the middle of modern Lisbon, Tram 28 founds another report/ratio at time and recalls that the city with the seven hills is deserved.
