Description:
Undated. View of tram no.195, on route 1 to West Park, coming out of Street Lane onto Moortown Corner, the junction with Harrogate Road. Adverts for Melbourne Ales and Vernons Pools can be seen on the tram, which is a Horsfield built between 1930 and 1931.

Interesting that this tram is showing route 1 to West Park. I thought Route 1 was Lawnswood to West Park and closed in 1956. What would it be doing at Moortown Corner with this designation ?

AS far as I can remember the No1 route started at Lawnswood and went down through West Park, Headingley, City Square, Briggate, North St and then split at the Sheepscar library. The trams then went on a circular route. Clockwise going up Chapeltown Rd to Moortown Corner then down to the Park, Oakwood and finally Sheepscar Library. Anticlockwise would do the same trip in reverse going along Roundhay Rd first and arrive back at the library. Both routes then went up North St on the way to Lawnswood via town.
