Birmingham Before the Electric Tram


The City of Birmingham ran routes using steam trams, cable trams and battery-powered accumulator trams until these were swept away by the considerably more efficient electric trams which we remember today, their power supplied through overhead cables. In this wonderful collection of period images, David Harvey shows us Birmingham through its public transport as the nineteenth century turned into the twentieth. This is a vivid look at the architecture and technology of Victorian and Edwardian Britain at its height.
