This hardback book by Martin Petch - SOUTHAMPTON TRAMWAYS - was published by Middleton Press in 1994. The book measures approx. 17cms. by 24cms. high and contains 121 black and white photographs of these tramcars in service, each with a detailed descriptive caption - together with maps, illustrations of various types of ticket used, etc.
