London United Tramways (LUT) covered west London from Shepherd's Bush out as far as Uxbridge and Hounslow, and across south west London from Tooting to Hampton Court. It brought cheap, reliable transport for Londoners, but its success was hard won. This richly illustrated account traces the story of LUT from the initial struggles against technical difficulties and anti-tram prejudice, through its heyday under the flamboyant General Manager, James Clifton Robinson, to its demise in the late 1940s.
