Throughout the eighty-year period of tram transport (1873-1953), Birmingham grew appreciably as a city. This was partly due to the influx of people seeking work in a city soundly based economically and offering '1,001' trades, as well as the incorporation of parishes such as Handsworth, Aston and Northfield. With the expansion of the city in population and area came the need to expand its tramway system; routes grew into complex, city-wide, spider web-shaped networks only to be dismantled over time as bus services gained the ascendancy. In their heyday, however, trams travelled along all the main directions of a Birmingham compass, moving through densely populated, highly industrialised inner suburbs to leafier outer suburbs, to places of work and entertainment, and to the busy, bustling city centre. Based on the twenty-eight tram routes in operation during 1937, readers are taken on an illustrated variety of tram journeys, with places and points of interest being identified on the way. In short, an entertaining, kaleidoscope of images is placed on show while, at the same time, the author - as a former passenger - pays tribute to the Birmingham tram and its associated staff.
