Manchester Corporation Tramways Enquiry into the subject of Traffic Congestion

£60.00

Product description

Manchester Corporation Tramways Enquiry into the subject of Traffic Congestion in the Central Streets of the City.
Published in January, 1913. 

This volume is the "Interim Report by the Special Sub-Committee for Manchester Corporation Tramways. The report is titled:  "Enquiry into the subject of traffic congestion in the central streets of the city". The report is bound and contains tables of statistics regarding vehicles in various parts of Manchester together with numerous fold-out maps and diagrams illustrating the findings in various parts of the city. 

It is an original document detailing historical information about the city of Manchester immediately before the First World War.

Between 1901 and 1949 Manchester Corporation Tramways (known as Manchester Corporation Transport Department from 1929 onwards) was the municipal operator of electric tram services in Manchester, England.

In the run up to the start of the First World War there was an enormous expansion and consolidation of tram services to the extent that by 1915 trams were the most popular form of transit; the Manchester system was carrying 200 million passenger journeys a year on 662 vehicles (there were only a handful of buses at this time). By 1913 there were so many services running in and out of Manchester city centre that the route names had to be replaced with route numbers

CONDITION: The volume is intact although the binding to the front and back cover is loose at spine but not detached. The covers are slightly stained and faded with scuffs along the edges but nevertheless still clearly legible. The text block is a combination of pages of statistics and analysis of the data etc plus many fold-out maps. The latter are marginally "outsized". The maps are intact but have tears and nicks throughout. Some of the pages are faded and thumbed. The volume has a press clipping from the time. Considering its age, in good condition. (See photos)
