Depot, ex-London tram no.1 (Unknown)
Black & White imagec1951. View shows the interior of an unidentified tram depot, probably Kirkstall Road works. Several trams can be seen, the main focus being the ex-London no. 1, which was to run in Leeds as no. 301. As it is still displaying its London number, it is assumed the photo was taken while still being modified at Kirkstall before it entered service in Leeds in December 1951. Despite suffering a fire on its first journey in Leeds, the tram was to contnue in service until 1957 when it was returned to London to the Transport Collection at Clapham; it has since been transferred to the Crich Tramway Museum.

In 1935 it was extensively rebuilt and altered to accomodate 40 trams. The last trams in Leeds ran in 1959, the depot was then used by buses. It was again upgraded and enlarged in the late 1970s. By 1993 the site was sold for redevelopment. It is now a complex of retirement homes.
