The fruits of a lifetime’s study validated by access to official records, this is the long-awaited companion volume to our previous publications The Glasgow Tramcar, Glasgow Buses and The Glasgow Horse Tramways. In a strictly limited edition, published jointly with Venture Publications, this 304-page English language volume outlines the history of the development and demise of the massive Glasgow Tramway system in chronological, easy-to-follow diary format, subdivided into convenient time frames and backed up by Appendices covering depots, individual services histories, headcode, slipboard and destination displays. Many mysteries are explained and a few revelations have come to light!
Lavishly illustrated with over 200 photographs (most previously unpublished), 4 maps, 30 of Ian Stewart’s highly detailed drawings, and further garnished with ephemera including 30 traffic and publicity notices formerly displayed on the trams, this A4-size case-bound book is the STTS' most ambitious project so far.
