Leicester Tramways (Middleton)

Back Order

Railed public transport existed on Leicester’s streets for 75 years, beginning with horse powered trams from 1874, and replaced by electric traction which lasted until 1949.

This book provides a photographic record of the trams at work along the routes they served, illustrating street scenes from the late Victorian period through to the reign of George VI. Photographs illustrate the tramcars at work, but also street scenes from throughout the first half of the 20th century.

Hardback. 96 pages, including 120 black & white photographs.
