Dunfermline & West Fife's Trams & Buses

Availability: In stock

Before the introduction of its tram system and early motor buses, Dunfermline was like any other town of similar size the length and breadth of the country, reliant on the railways and the local stagecoach owners to move the town's residents from place to place. In the early years of the twentieth century, this would all change quite radically. In 1909 Dunfermline's first motor bus licences were granted, and the trams started operating. Walter Burt, himself a Fife bus driver, charts the advances of the trams and buses which have served the people of Dunfermline and West Fife, from the earliest humble motor engined vehicles and electric trams, to the air conditioned vehicles on the roads at present. It also takes in the changing face of west Fife, with a lot of changes having taking place in the backgrounds of most locations in the photographs.
