Briggate, central reservation, watercolour painting by Pete Lapish (City Centre) (3 comments)
Colour imagec1954. Watercolour painting by Pete Lapish showing the central reservation in Briggate, looking in the direction of the Headrow. A queue of people are seen boarding the tram at the end where the driver is stationed. Although the central reservation has safety barriers for the boarding passengers a woman passenger is forced to alight from the rear of the tram and will have to negotiate the traffic. This tram is on route 2, a circular route. Route 2 travels up Chapeltown Road to Moortown Corner and back to the city centre via. Roundhay Park. The Horsfield tram on route 4, background, right, is heading for Kirkstall. Pete Lapish is inspired by his nostalgia for the Leeds tramways of his boyhood, when on dark, windy evenings in the winter the lamps would sway from the wires, casting huge shadows. He uses various sources to make accurate studies of Leeds street scenes from different periods. The sports shop of Thornton & Co Ltd., seen on the left at numbers 50 & 51 Briggate, holds particular memories for him as he used to covet the tennis raquets in the window near the tram stop. Adjacent, at numbers 52 & 53 Briggate, is Manfield & Sons Ltd., boot and shoe makers. More of Pete Lapish's images can be seen on his website www.petelapish.art

A bowling green was also laid out. The park could be accessed by people travelling the tram route along Chapeltown Road and Regent Street.
