Trolleybuses provided a form of public transport in Rotherham for over fifty years, having been the fourth British system to be opened in 1912.  They also operated to the north of the town to Rawmarsh, Swinton, Mexborough and Conisbrough on joint services with the Mexborough and Swinton Company.

From the early 1930s, the vehicles were noted for their speed and streamlined livery.  This publication illustrates these fume free electric vehicles in service along the routes they served.  It also provides street scenes taken in the mid twentieth century, which should interest those that study the social history of the area.
