Size: 21cm x 29.5cm, 182 pages
This book covers the history of the Metropolitan Electric Tramways in North Middlesex and its predecessors until their closure in 1938, and continues the story of the MET Feltham cars until they were sold in 1952.
The author brings together his personal memories of riding on North London trams before the late 1930s trolleybus conversions with a comprehensive history of the Metropolitan Electric Tramways and its predecessors. Evocatively illustrated in black and white with numerous maps and depot layout drawings, the days of horse, steam and electric traction are brought to life. The iconic "Feltham" cars are described and their subsequent disposal in 1952 is also covered.
