Street Railways of Birmingham book cover 1976.jpg

Street Railways of Birmingham is a 1976 book by Alvin Hudson and Harold Cox which details the history and operation of Birmingham's streetcar systems, from the dummy lines of the 1880s to the rubber-wheeled electric buses of the 1940s and 1950s.

The book, self-published in softcover by Cox, includes hundreds of photographs and dozens of hand-drawn maps. It was based on an earlier book that Hudson authored, entitled "Streetcars of Birmingham" that he published in 1971.
