This album follows the roads that Southend electric trolleybuses travelled when they served the borough for 29 years, eventually replacing trams from an earlier era.  This silent fume free form of public transport carried holidaymakers and day trippers to all the seafront attractions at the Kursaal and Pier, whilst also serving other residential areas of the town.  Pictures include the area around Victoria Circus, before its current incarnation, which was the hub of the trolleybus system, plus street scenes taken between 1925 and 1954.

 

Reviews:

'Colin Barker has done an excellent research job to produce this very interesting account of the system and its vehicles.'
(reviewed by Carl F Isgar, Trolleybus Magazine, TM 306, November-December 2012)
