    Unknown Uniform - Werkschutz? Police?

    Those are some unseen(by me) uniform variants.  Thank you for sharing them.  I wonder what color the piping around the collar tabs is?  Red is railway.  I wonder if tram/street cars had a specific color?

    Hi Paul,

    I have several Strassenbahn photos in my collection and all show different variations of uniforms. I don't know whether there was any standardization of uniforms or whether each district/city used their own version.

    The trams conductor in my photo wears the Wien Strassenbahn emblem on his cap. The person in the original post wears a similar type of badge.  He wears all his gear for the photo including a lamp with white and possibly red lenses.

    In his left hand he holds a whistle. My best guess is that he is some kind of guard. Which organization he was part of is unknown to me.
