I love this kitchen towel from Portugal featuring The  Lisbon Tram Car.

The railway system called; Rede de eléctricos de Lisboa, serves the municipality of Lisbon, Portugal.

In operation since 1873, it presently comprises five urban lines, and is primarily a tourist attraction.

Here’s a video below of the Lisbon Tram car, and a site to learn more about the history of tram cars in Lisbon.
