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 recognizable 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.

During the late 19th century the port and city of Southampton expanded rapidly and, to cater for the growing population, a network of trams - horse initially but latterly electric - grew up. This volume documents its history and development and provides a fascinating visual insight into the city at its time of operation.
