Once the largest tramway network in the British Isles, London's tramways had belonged to a range of operators until the London Passenger Transport Board was created in July 1933, and this resulted in a great variety of tramcars being operated in the Metropolis. This is one of four volumes to cover the history of electric tramcar operation in the city. Once stretching as far east as Dartford, much of the network south-east of the River Thames survived World War II and remained operational until conversion commenced in 1950.
