The End of the Penny Section
By Graham Stewart

A history of urban transport in New Zealand

This book is the story of passenger transport in the urban streets of New Zealand, the story of many classic vehicles and the people who manned and rode them. Passenger transport gave an essential service which was as important to a city centre as the flow of blood through the veins of a body. Vehicles, whether horse-drawn or steam- or electric-powered, were never far from people's homes; they passed the corner of the street at regular intervals and became involved in the family life of urban dwellers.
