This is the second book by Martin Jenkins and Charles Roberts about transport in the Isle of Man.

The first volume – described in Classic Bus as a “splendid book [which] takes you on a wonderfully nostalgic journey all round the island in lovely photographs” and by one Amazon reviewer as “a captivating book of beautiful and well-reproduced colour photos” – covered the steam railway, shipping and Road Services buses.

This book, using many previously unpublished rare early colour pictures, completes the coverage by looking at the Manx Electric and Snaefell Mountain Railways, as well as the buses and horse trams of Douglas Corporation.

The authors have managed to collect together some truly interesting and often stunning pictures, from a period when colour coverage of transport subjects was almost non-existent.

The quality photos paint a fascinating picture of a long lost era, not just of the trams themselves but the period elements around them, from cars to the fashions of travellers.
