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.
