Leicester and its Trams Tramscape & Townscape 1903 - 1949
The author’s first evocation of the Trams of his boyhood, LEICESTER’S TRAMS, was published by Irwell Press in 2000 and sold out long ago. This new account is compiled from all new material - an unrivalled further sequence of photographs and Leicester streetscapes, from the long-distant days before the Great War to the petrol-rationed times of austerity after the Second. Beautifully painted and kept in excellent order the Leicester Trams fought a long rearguard until 1949 – they were the Great Survivors of the tram world. By the 1930s, tramways had been abandoned in every East Midlands municipality, with one notable exception – the City of Leicester.
