Arguably the last of the ’traditional’ tramways to operate in Britain, Dundee’s fleet of some 56 trams were to survive through until the mid-1950s when – despite considerable opposition – this popular form of transport was replaced by bus. The final Dundee trams operated in October 1956.• The Lost Tramways of Scotland 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.
