Lost Tramways of England: London North-East (Graffeg)

Back Order

Lost Tramways of England: London North-East is one of four books in the Lost Tramways of England series which focus on London’s tramways. In this volume the author, Peter Waller, covers the history of tram operations in the north-east of the city.

London was once the largest tramway network in the British Isles. Originally, London's tramways had belonged to a range of different operators, but in April 1933 the London Passenger Transport Act 1933 was passed and the London Passenger Transport Board was created, resulting in a great variety of tramcars being operated in the Metropolis. In the north-east of the city the tram operations of East Ham Corporation, West Ham Corporation, Ilford Corporation, Walthamstow Corporation and the London County Council were taken over by the LPTB in July 1933, as was the track still owned by Barking Urban District Council. The routes to the north-east had been created as a result of network developments carried out by a number of local authorities and the LPTB set out to convert the routes to trolleybus operation leading up to 1940.
