Transit Australia Publishing. Ian G Cooper. Details the history of trolley Buses in Hobart and Launceston. 208 pages, colour and b & w. 243 photographs, 137 in colour.
Tasmania’s Trolley Buses details the history of the many proposals for trolley buses in Hobart and Launceston and the development of the Hobart and Launceston networks. Almost all photographs are published for the first time, and many streetscape images include trams, petrol buses and diesel buses, thus adding to the record of the State’s urban transport scene. A significant feature of the book is the inclusion of 27 pages of photographs illustrating trolley bus operations, route by route, or district by district. Almost all these street scenes are in colour and are supplemented by detailed captions.
