The Manchester and Ashton trolleybus network was one of the largest in the country. Manchester's red and Ashton's blue vehicles shared the wires on most of the services between the two areas, and in addition Manchester had a substantial network of its own. The photographs allow the reader to explore all the routes in turn, including those radiating from the city centre into Cheshire, and the intense services into the north-west suburbs, showing how all these areas looked in the middle of the last century.
