Going back to the 1940s

September 15, 2015

A new title will shortly appear that covers a decade now passing from memories of two generations.   Blackpool's transport history during the last major war and its immediate aftermath is recounted in the forthcoming book ' Municipal Transport in War and Austerity - 1939 to 1949'.   It is the sequel to 'Municipal Transport in Transition'  which recounts the radical changes initiated by Walter Luff from 1933 to 1939 following his appointment to head Blackpool's transport operations.

 

The next title in this series will deal with yet a further management change and a host of new strategies during the 1950s.
