ACME Thunderer Whistle

This object was used in the eras of the tram which sadly are no longer in use in the city. Regardless of which city it came from this object will bring back memories and conjour up images of 'clippies' all over.
In the history of the world it will relate to a bygone era of trams used as public transport.
My object is an ACME Thunderer with GCT (Glasgow Corporation Tramways) stamped on the side of the sound chamber.
