From the first single decked horse drawn trams in 1879 to the Croydon Tramlink in 1998, Croydon has been a centre of tramway operation for over a century. Robert J Harley has compiled a detailed history of its trams and trolleybuses up to the 1950s, covering the networks, rolling stock, economics and politics of tram use. Packed with archive photographs, maps, plans and memorabilia, this is a colourful commemoration of an important part of transport history.
