May 3rd marks the 60th anniversary of Aberdeen's last tram on the route from Bridge of Dee to Bridge of Don. Keith Jones will talk about the history of the city's tramways from the earliest lines in 1874 to closure in 1958, the expansion of the bus network from the 1920s onwards and a look at the changes, not all for the better, that have taken place over the last 60 years.

Keith is a retired local government officer and now Transport Historian, also member of the Great North of Scotland Railway Association. He has authored a number of books and magazine articles on local transport history and has visited and travelled over tramway systems worlwide.
