Interior of a Middleton Bogie, number 271
Undated. Image shows the interior of a 'Middleton Bogie', tram car number 271. It was designed by W. Van Morland who was at that time General Manager and Engineer of Leeds City Tramways. The series of 16 cars numbered between 256 and 271 were built in 1935 and withdrawn between 1956 and 1957. They were able to seat 30 persons on the lower deck and 40 on the upper deck.

The General Manager's name was William Vane (not 'Van') Morland. No date for this picture, but I'd say it was fairly late in the car's life, looking at some of the scarred woodwork on the bulkhead. Car 271 last ran in April 1956 and was scrapped in November of that year.
