Blog Post No 45. This image and writing by an unknown hand was posted in the Yorkshire Evening Post on Saturday 22 December 2001. I thank the unknown writer for his kind and perceptive comments. However in my opinion it is a great pity that there are no trams on the streets of Leeds in the 21st century.

The picture was one of a number commissioned over a period of years by Heather Hilder, daughter of the famous artist Roland Hilder for Kingsmead cards. Nearly all these of snowy Northern city centre tramscapes.

Each beautifully produced card was either for a hospital charity or in the case of several Leeds images, as far as I know for St Gemma’s Hospice.

This picture will appear again in a future Blog Post, but in full colour together with my own comments regarding time and place. Other images of Leeds and Cities for cards produced by Kingsmead cards will also be the subjects of further Blogs. Copyrights for all all these images were all returned to me following the termination of the contract requirements.
