The story of Cardiff's Tramways which were always self-sufficient, never subsidised from rates, and generally managed to make a profit. It was clearly one of the most successful transport undertakings in Britain; and there is no doubt that Cardiff was very much the poorer once the last tram had run into the depot on the 20th February, 1950.
