Button description Uniforms not worn

Comment The Birkenhead United Tramway, Omnibus and Carriage Co is well represented photographically (see link), and these images clearly show that staff, with the possible exception of overcoats, did not wear uniforms. It therefore seems highly likely that marked company buttons never existed.
