Boar Lane, painting by Pete Lapish (City Centre)

To achieve this he has used a semi-pointilistic technique in his painting.

Briggate in the direction of the Headrow, watercolour painting by Pete Lapish (City Centre)
Colour image1938. Watercolour painting by Pete Lapish showing Briggate looking north in the direction of the Headrow. The street is busy with people and many trams are in view. The artist often chooses the era of the Leeds tramway system as the subject matter for his very detailed paintings. He researches the period carefully to capture an accurate representation of the city at that time. Many Leeds people share a nostalgia for the old trams and Pete Lapish's watercolours evoke happy memories of those days. In the foreground a Chamberlain tramcar is seen as it turns to our left into Boar Lane, with another following close behind. A Lance Corporal in light blue livery is picking up passengers en route to Lawnswood. About to ascend Briggate is a Horsfield tram. Some images by Pete Lapish are available to purchase as postcards or greetings cards from Leeds Visitor Centre - see our 'useful links' page.
