When Albert Stanley, Lord Ashfield, was appointed to the newly formed London Passenger Transport Board in 1933, trams were considered yesterday's technology and development in the interwar period focused on buses, electric trolleybuses and the Underground. Arguing that this policy was based more on prejudice than sound judgement, this illustrated history charts the demise of London's trams over the next two decades at the hands, principally, of Lord Ashfield, his chief executive Frank Pick, and politician Herbert Morrison.
