by E.Thornton & J.S.King

Published by the LRTA 2005. This entirely new work by Stanley King, loyal Yorkshireman, LRTA member, Bradford City Councillor and one-time Lord Mayor of Bradford, based on the text of E. Thornton, a long standing colleague.

The book covers the whole story in numerous chapters from early beginnings right through to the final days of this traditional double-deck tramway system - all set down in lively style. The different car types are fully described and illustrated. Halifax is in the shadow of the Pennines so many routes were steep, greatly adding to the interest.

144 pages,A4 size,145 photos, various appendices, maps on endpapers, cover picture specially painted,
