The heavily damaged Frankfurt tram network before the rerouting of routes 23, 24 and 25 along the Eschersheimer Landstraße between Bergerstraße and Glauburgstraße. The tram network functioned in two parts, as bridges across the Main river were either destroyed during World War II or were not allowed to carry tram traffic.
