Harrogate Road, tram no.254
Description:
31st March 1956. View looking north along Harrogate Road showing tram no.254, a Horsfield car built in 1931-2, bound for Briggate. On the right, by the junction with Lidgett Lane, is the Corner House Club social club. On the left a car can be seen emerging from Moorland Drive. In the background, to the right of another tram, are buildings now (2010) occupied by the Carphone Warehouse and Yorkshire Bank.

Am I wrong in thinking the tram is passing the end of Lidgett Lane on its way to town, and that the Corner House is out of sight, opposite the tram in the background on the left of the picture?

J Tebbs is both right and wrong. The building on the right of the picture is the corner house CLUB and has been a club for over 60 years. The building to the left of the following tram, whih is out of veiw, was the corner house which has been a cinema and latterly a casino which closed some years ago. Planning permission has been granted to turn this building into flats but as yet work has not begun

I think we are looking at a rear view of No.254 as it heads to Briggate the long way round via Roundhay Park (it is heading north). What looks like an ex London tram in the distance is probably going to get to Briggate more quickly ....
