Lombard-Gerin & Inventing the Trolleybus
By Ashley Bruce
...a new look at what came first.
A very detailed, and lavishly illustrated, story of the invention of the Trolleybus between 1882 and 1914, particularly through the achievements of Louis Lombard-Gerin (1848-1918). Covering American, British, French and German developments by examining the individual inventors, their successes and failures and their influences.
158 pages of every aspect of the engineering and economic contexts of early Trolleybus history, with 348 photographs and images. By dispelling myths and with original research, this book uncovers a surprisingly relevant story of railless electric traction, its purpose and need.
