Railed public transport existed in Ipswich for nearly 46 years, first with horse power and subsequently electric traction. The latter had a relatively short life of less than 23 years when compared with many other municipalities operating trams and were replaced by trolleybuses. This publication provides a photographic record of the trams at work along the routes they served illustrating atmospheric scenes of late Victorian and early Edwardian life in this county town.
