History of trolleybuses. Iris Murdoch was one of the most complex writers in modern English fiction. She was born in 1919 in Dublin. The main theme of her novels is the fate of men and women in modern society, their belief and disbelief. Her heroes are lonely and suffering people. In all her novels we find love as great and mysterious force. It is the inner world of the character that interests Iris Murdoch. Her books arise out of the varied experiences of life. Her first novel 'Under the Net' appeared in 1954 and since then she published a book almost every year. Some of Murdoch's novels. expose the dangers of abstract system of behavior that cut out people off from spontaneous, loving relationships.

Part of Spurbooks Limited's Illustrated History Series, this heavily illustrated book charts the history of the tram and trolleybus, from the 17th century to the day 'before yesterday'. As with so many forms of transport, the time of the tram and trolleybus seems to be over. Here and there throughout the world, these enjoyable forms of urban transport still persist, to be employed by the locals, and enjoyed by the visitors, but as a common method of town transport they are fading fast into the nostalgic past. In this book, the authors explore and explain the age of electrified urban transport, pointing out the problems and explaining the past. It includes chapters on the Development of the Tram, the Crewmen, Tramway Legislation, the Romance of the Trams, Tram Fares and Fare Collection, the Decline of the Tram and the Survivors, the Development of the Trolleybus, the First Generation of Trolleybuses, the Rise and Fall of the Trolleybus Era, the Evolution of the Modern Trolleybus, the Experimentals, Trolleybuses Around the World, the Overhead, and Bringing Trolleybuses to Life Again. The book includes a great many black & white photos and diagrams of tram and trolley equipment.
