In his latest tram book for Ian Allan Publishing, Peter Waller provides a pictorial tribute to the history of Britain's tramway systems. Drawing upon both colour and mono illustrations, many of which are previously unpublished, the book examines the role of the tramcar in society. Adopting the well-established and successful 'Glory Days' format, the book describes how local communities welcomed the tramcar, how the tram was used for pleasure as well as for work, how the increased threat of abandonment led to local campaigns and pressure groups for retention and how the new generation of trams have proved much more successful than their promoters anticipated. Lavishly illustrated throughout and with a pertinent and lucid text, Glory Days: British Trams is an excellent addition to the successful 'Glory Days' series. It will be read and enjoyed by enthusiasts in particular and by those nostalgic for a lost Britain in general.
