As Birmingham grew in the late Victorian and Edwardian period, the city slowly consumed farmland and small villages on its outskirts. With this growth came a need to transport workers to their jobs or for leisure. Firstly trams, and then buses would transport the worker or day tripper around the city. David Harvey takes us on a nostalgic journey back in time, when it was possible to travel the city's roads without the congestion we see today. From open-top trams and buses to roads any resident will be familiar with, David Harvey presents a collection of 200 fascinating images of the city, its workers and the public transport from the city centre to the Lickey Hills.
