With the twentieth century arrived the first
electric tramcars in London.
Thirty years later the first trolley buses
arrived-along with a fleet of new trams that
were the most modern of their day.
This era was one of rapid change,
rich in achievement adn personalities.
Among the more colourful of the undertakings
involved was London United, which introduced the first
public service of electric tramcars in 1901 adn
became one of the predecessors of the present London Transport.
This is a study of this eventful period,
relating the development of the tramway and
trolleybus system to the changing social background.
It contains a wealth of hitherto unpublished material,
both factual and anecdotal, taken from contemporary
newspaper and other accounts, and a remarkable
collection of illustrations – 48 pages in all.
It should be of interest not only to the transport enthusiast
but also to the general reader interested in social history.
