Lost Tramways of England: Leeds East is the second of two volumes in the series covering the history of trams in the city, from their origins in the late 19th century through to the conversion of the final routes in November 1959. This volume examines in detail the later history of the system from the outbreak of war in September 1939 through the developments of the 1940s to the period of conversion
from the early 1950s, as well as concentrating on routes that served the eastern side of the city, such as those to Temple Newsam, Middleton, Gipton and Hunslet.
Peter Waller’s first book, British and Irish Tramway Systems since 1945, was published in 1992 and since then he has written extensively on transport subjects. He is now a full-time author and editor as well as being a director and secretary of the Online Transport Archive.
