Preston Deepdale - History of a Bus Garage
We currently have 136 in stock.
Regular Venture author Mike Rhodes explores the history of this famous address and this book is the result of a more than 50 years fascination with the depot and its operations. Originally a horse tram operation, Preston commenced electric tram services from the newly built Deepdale premises in the early 1900s, and the depot housed all the facilities the tramway needed including the power station, along with the workshops and car sheds. Later converted to motor bus operation, the garage remains in use today and is the hub of the city's Rotala operation.
