Brand New Book

This fascinating book traces the development of trams in and around the Yorkshire towns of Dewsbury and Wakefield, and is a wonderful illustrated history.

 
The book covers two relatively large tramway systems based at Dewsbury and Wakefield and a small system based at Ossett, and unlike other tramway undertakings in West Yorkshire, which were municipally owned and operated, these three were company operated.
 
The book relies heavily on old picture postcards, collected by the author since 1970, and most of the illustrations have not appeared in print before. In addition to trams, they reveal a background of altered or vanished buildings, plus people going about their daily lives.
