Although better known as a pioneer of trolleybus operation, Bradford played host to Britain's longest surviving trolleybus network (61 years) - the corporation operated a sizeable fleet of 4ft 0in gauge trams through to May 1950. As such, Bradford could lay claim to being the last 4ft 0in tram operator in Britain and - in the restoration of No 104 - the first to see a derelict tramcar restored to use. - The Lost Tramways of England series documents the tram networks which were at the heart of many of Britain'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. - An informative, accessible and portable resource for the tram enthusiast as well as the general reader, and a superb souvenir or gift for visitors past and present. - Photo illustrated throughout, including many archive images which are appearing in print for the first time.
