The district of Lytham and St Annes have always had a character distinctive from that of their northern neighbour on the Fylde Coast, Blackpool. This is the story of a part of that distinctive character: the tramway history of the twin towns diverged from that of Blackpool from the start, with the courageous decision to employ gas trams powered by the internal-combustion engine, which was to come to dominate passenger transport in the 20th century after the false dawn of the Edwardian tramway boom.
