Wheels Around Perth
Wheels Around Perth. This book will delight both transport enthusiasts and anyone with an interest in the history of Perth. Not only are there dozens of excellent transport photographs, but many of these include aspects of the city that have long since vanished. There are plenty of pictures of Perth's erstwhile trams, while horse-drawn traffic, locomotives, a paddle steamer, bicycles, cars, buses and delivery vehicles are illustrated going about their daily business on the city's streets. Perth's important history as a rail hub is well covered, while more unusual subjects include a fair on the South Inch and a cricket match on the North Inch (you'll need to read the book to discover the 'wheels' connection!).
