This new strand in the popular Lost Lines of Wales series documents a second area of Wales’ transport heritage, its now lost tramways.
Horse trams were in use in Cardiff from 1872 and were a vital part of the city’s transport, carrying 23 million passengers in 1904. These services evolved over the course of the century, and the development of the tram and its services follows the growth of the city towards becoming the nation’s capital. This rigorously researched account, photo-illustrated throughout, details the history of Cardiff’s tramway and the city at the time when these services were in regular use, guiding you through its story station by station.
Peter Waller is the author of numerous works on British transport history, including several regional studies of its tramways.
