From 1907 to 1953, Birmingham Corporation's trams provided an efficient and praiseworthy public transport service throughout the city, carrying millions of passengers during that time. Based on the twenty-eight tram routes in operation during 1937 (a representative year with trams operating in all parts of the city except the south-west sector), readers of this book are taken pictorially on a variety of tram journeys, places and points of interest being identified on the way. In their heyday, trams travelled along all the main directions of a Birmingham compass, moving through densely populated, highly industrialised inner suburbs to leafier outer suburbs, to places of work, places of entertainment and to the busy, bustling city centre. In short, an entertaining kaleidoscope of images is placed on show.
