SCT'61
The Great British Weather

Leeds 151 leads a line-up of snowbound "Horsfields". Although on the outward bound track, it's destination is set for a return to town and looks like it is about to use the Cross Flatts Park short-turn crossover.
This photo was from a glass negative taken (possibly) by the Yorkshire Evening Post. It was one of a limited number of tram-related negatives saved by local enthusiasts prior to the destruction of a huge collection of glass negative plates during a storage clear-out in the early 1970s. (I still have a scar on my hand from being cut by one of the many broken plates.) Had this collection lasted into the digital age, there would have been a wonderful archive of Leeds life for everyone to enjoy but, at the time, finding and saving transport pictures was our only remit.

Photo taken by unknown (Paul Haywood collection), circa 1955, Cross Flatts Park, Dewsbury Road
