Published by the LRTA 2020

This book is a photographic album covering the tramways of Vienna in colour between 1956 and 1978. It is bilingual, in English and German. As one of the world’s largest tramway systems Vienna has always had a rich variety of cars, routes, depots, work equipment, streetscapes and backdrops. For this book, the authors have gathered outstanding colour images taken by photographers from Australia, the UK and the USA as well as from Vienna itself, the earliest dating from the mid-1950s. The majority of the selected images come from Online Transport Archive, a UK-based charity, devoted to the conservation and preservation of transport-related images. The book sets out to represent each of the various types of motor car operating after World War II in as wide a range of locations as possible, sometimes with and sometimes without trailers. There are also selected views of the Stadtbahn and Wien-Baden Lokalbahn as well as various works cars. To complete the overall picture a few period views of buses and trolleybuses have been included. The coverage ends in 1978 when the last of the classic M-type motor cars was withdrawn.

English & German text, A4 hardcover landscape format comprises 144 pages Fully illustrated in colour
