From the rear side cover: For fifty years from 1882, trams trundled noisily along the streets of Exeter, drawn initially by horses but later powered by electricity. Welcomed as the 'Workmen's Car', trams took people to work, to shop or to enjoy themselves and were an affordable way of getting around the growing city. In 1931, however, the tram was superseded by the bus, which was seen as a more flexible method of public transport for the age of the motor car.

This book traces the history of the trams in Exeter and, with illustrations from period photographs, will be of interest to those who want to know more about Exeter in late Victorian times and the early twentieth century and also to tram enthusiasts...


The condition of the book is generally good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, and some light nibbling and wear along the edges, but the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. The left and right hand edges of the book curve gently upwards from where the book has been stored flat on the shelves.
