"When Trams Were Trumps is an illustrated history of the birth and evolution of the tramcar in New Zealand.

The book is divided into three sections. The first, "All Fares Please!", illustrates the inception and growth of private enterprise horse, steam, cable, electric and battery tramways.

The second, "Monarchs of the Road", brings back some of that past era when trams were part of everday life and gave people mobility in the days before the ascendancy of the automobile.

The third, "Rust in Peace", commemorates the nostalgic farewells to vehicles that had endeared themselves to generations. The illustrations have been chosen from many thousands of pictures taken by photographers through the decades.

More than 200 photographs, 40 colour plates, 30 historic tickets, and cartoons, chronicle the passing parade of these classic vehicles through the changing facades of streets in New Zealand cities, and the people who drove and rode them, spanning more than 100 years."
