This video recaptures the days when trams dominated our towns and cities. Relive the hustle and bustle of the horse age, the excitement surrounding the new electric trams, and the smoke and grime of the last steam trams. See scores of different types of tram in action-packed sequences - open-toppers, modern streamliners, toastracks (both single and double-deckers), illuminated trams, football cars, works trams, a post tram, a First World War restaurant, also a dramatic accident.
Visit depots and workshops, travel with drivers and conductors, catch glimpses of fashions, shops and road traffic through the decades, follow closures and abandonments, wave goodbye to old friends, and welcome new trams in Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham and Croydon.
