LOST TRAMWAYS of ENGLAND: Leeds West ISBN: 9781913733506

by: Peter Waller


Lost Tramways of England: Leeds West is the first of two volumes in the series covering the history of trams in the city, from their origins in the late 19th century through to the final routes in November 1959. This volume examines in detail the early history of the tramways, including the horse, steam and pioneering Roundhay electric trams, as well as concentrating on the tramways that served to the western side of the city - such as those to Stanningley, Pudsey, Whingate, Elland Road and Kirkstall Abbey.
The Lost Tramways of England series documents the tram networks which were at the heart of many of England'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.
