You might struggle with this scene but it is in fact looking across Waite Street, Cosham. The tram is heading for Spur Road.  Picture: Barry Cox Collection

David Bowler has e-mailed from Switzerland looking for anyone who had anything to do with Portsmouth’s trolley bus system. David is finishing a detailed book about City of Portsmouth Passenger Transport Department trolley buses 1934-1964.

Any anecdotes from the 1930s and wartime would be appreciated, although any stories you might have would do.

You can e-mail David on bowler.drhte@bluewin.ch or drop me a line. Thank you.
