This is not an in-depth study of trams in Lowestoft. It is a story of what happened amongst the tramway committee, the townsfolk, the construction and the first day, the Mayor and so obviously his dream.
I have tried to make the first part easy reading and not to get too many facts and figures breaking up the flow. To combat this, I have added a second part as a kind of appendix for those that like to see the technical data. There is quite a lot of this consisting of extracts from minutes of the committee, from the Lowestoft Journal and from several books already published on the subject.
