Lost Tramways of England: Brighton

Lost Tramways of England: Brighton - Peter Waller

Lost Tramways of England: Brighton

The Brighton fleet of 3ft 6in trams was to survive virtually until the outbreak of World War II, indeed replacement trams were still being constructed in the 1930s, but a joint traffic arrangement set up in conjunction with one of the local bus operators saw the trams replaced by trolleybus and bus. Alongside the trams, Brighton also played host to Volk's Electric Railway - one of the world's pioneering electric railways and still operational today. The Lost Tramways of England series documents the tram networks which were at the heart of many of Britain's growing towns and cities from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th century. - Transport expert Peter Waller, author of numerous works on the regional tram systems of the UK, guides the reader along the route of the network and discusses its key features stop by stop. - As well as rigorously detailed transport history, these volumes provide an intimate glimpse into life as it was lived during this period, and the recognisable streets which have been maintained or transformed through the decades. - An informative, accessible and portable resource for the tram enthusiast as well as the general reader, and a superb souvenir or gift for visitors past and present. - Photo illustrated throughout, including many archive images which are appearing in print for the first time.
