“The Days of The Norwich Trams: Transforming Streets, Transforming Lives"

An illustrated talk by Frances and Michael Holmes

In 1900 trams arrived on Norwich’s streets. They were greeted with awe as a technological wonder that not only revolutionised travel but also radically changed the City. Using a combination of images, archive material and contemporary accounts Frances & Michael Holmes will illustrate that story of the trams is about so much more than a vehicle – It is the story of how that vehicle transformed our city. Frances & Michael Holmes have researched and written a number of local history books, including ‘The Old Courts and Yards of Norwich’, ‘Norwich 1945 – 1960’ and ‘The Story of the Norwich Boot and Shoe Trade’. They operate as Norwich Heritage Projects and full details of their work can be found on their website www.norwich-heritage.co.uk.
