Tramways of Lytham St Annes


The districts of Lytham and St Annes have always had a character distinctive from that of their northern neighbour on the Fylde Coast, Blackpool. This is the story of a part of that distinctive character: the tramway history of the twin towns diverged from that of Blackpool from the start, with the courageous decision to employ gas trams, powered by the internal-combustion engine, which was to come to dominate passenger transport in the 20th century after the false dawn of the Edwardian tramway boom. Illustrated with over 170 photographs, plans, timetables etc. tracing the history of the trams until the system's demise in 1937. There is also a look at a fanciful proposal to link the Lytham system to Southport. A5 format, with 128 pages and square-backed 2 -colour Linson cover.
