The second of two volumes covering the history of tramcar operation in Glasgow. The book narrates the story of the city’s impressive network from the immediate post-war years, when the system was regarded as one of the most secure in the country, through the 1950s, when a change of policy initially saw a limited conversion policy instituted before complete abandonment was adopted, to the early 1960s when the final services were operated. This volume focuses on locations in the northern half of the city including City Centre, University, Clydebank, Kelvinside, Keppochhill Road and more.
