From the rear side cover: This book covers transport in the somewhat isolated, but substantial town, of Barrow in Furness, well known for its shipbuilding industry. It commences with a company operated steam tramway then an electric tramway system initially operated by BET Ltd. It covers the tramway and bus operations of the Barrow in Furness Corporation, which reached its heyday in the immediate post war years when Barrow had probably the most modern and standardised municipal bus fleet in the country. It concludes with operations up to the present time by Stagecoach subsidiary, Cumberland Motor Services.

The book is illustrated throughout with black and white photographs.
