The first years of the 20th Century were a golden age for trams, providing transport to and from the suburbs. Many historic scenes are included herein, helping to keep the memories of Colchester Corporation Tramways alive.

The oral history group, ‘Colchester Recalled’, has been particularly useful in providing eyewitness accounts from people who travelled and worked on the trams.



'It is 90 years since there were trams in Colchester, but such is the fascination for this bygone era it is certain this new book is going to be popular....
   The easy to read account and the photographs - with buildings in many street scenes often little changed - bring to life the Colchester of a century or more ago.'
(Sir Bob Russell, former Colchester MP - Essex County Standard, 2 August 2019)
