Lost Tramways of Wales- Swansea and Mumbles

Details

This new strand in the popular Lost Lines of Wales series documents a second area of Wales' transport heritage, now lost tramways. Public transport has particular significance in Swansea, as it was home to the world's first passenger railway service, carrying fare-paying customers from 1807; trams succeeded steam locomotives until the line eventually closed in 1960. This title recollects a lost aspect of Welsh heritage and the communities the tramway connected during its heyday. Rigorously researched and photo-illustrated throughout, the book details the history of Swansea's tramway and the city at the time when these services were in regular use, guiding you through its story station by station. Peter Waller is the author of numerous works on British transport history, including several regional studies of its tramways.
