Thanks for this gem, Hugh.  Some charming phrases therein:

In a forward state.  2,400 farthings collected.  The first part of a funeral service.  Unalterable as the laws of the Medes and Persians.  Leading out of the back bedroom is a smoking lounge.  And so on.  Drunk and disorderly - well, does that one still exist?  I suppose the police would have no time to deal with anything else.

The electrification of the trams in the period from 1901 until 1908/10 provided a much more efficient and faster means of travel, and lead to the demise of many inner London steam commuter services and laterly stations.

Severely hit by new electric trams were the services on the North London Line and into Broad Street. Broad Street never recovered its former glory and it took nigh on a hundred years for the NLL to cast off it's dowdy image.
