.Dudley was connected by tram to various parts of the Black Country, first by steam trams and then by electric ones. This book takes a route-by-route look at the development, operation and run-down of the tramway system which once linked Dudley to Brierley Hill, Stourbridge, Netherton, Cradley Heath, Pensnett, Kingswinford, Wordsley, Kinver, Lye, Wollaston, Old Hill and Blackheath. After charting each line’s history, the book recreates a ride along them using a plethora of historic photographs, many of which have not been published before, highlighting the many features and objects from the tramway that survive along the way.

In this book, David Harvey takes a look at Birmingham city transport in the Coronation year of 1953, covering the city's buses and trams. He starts by giving a brief overview of Birmingham in 1953 and then goes on to examine the Birmingham bus network, starting off by showing buses decorated for the Coronation and amid Birmingham's wider celebrations. The focus then shifts to the switch-over from trams to buses, first concentrating on the buses that took over from the trams, and then on the trams themselves. David pays particular attention to the final tram routes operating in the city, and then to the final day of operations and the very last trams. He also shows the scrapping of the trams. In this wonderful collection of photographs, some of which have never been published before, David Harvey gives a unique view of Birmingham in 1953, a period of great change in the city, and the country as a whole.

We know the specific strengths of various cities, are aware of their ranking, are able to discuss their density and growth. But what do all cities have in common, what do we know about the “lowest common denominator”? The “city as a species”, the “primal genetic material of the city”: this is the subject of A Quantum City. This colossal work is a love letter to the city and intellectual culture. We follow the fictional narrative figure, Orlando, beginning in 320 BC, on his odyssey through the Western world up to the present time. The book is divided into four interrelated chapters and can be read page by page in a discursive manner, however randomly browsing through the book also offers new and multi-faceted interpretations. Great intellectual achievements are compared with obscure and mundane events. A Quantum City offers an inspiring view of the city that is in us and around us.
