Lost Tramways: Leeds West
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.
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.
