The last tram to leave the Otley Road terminus at Lawnsood, photographed at 11.55 p.m., was Horsfield 222 which departed at 11.56 p.m. for City Square.
There was a large posse of photographers and others at Lawnswood (getting in the way!) and the streaks are due to rain drops splashing on the lens of the camera. The conductor, George Archibald, a West Indian who came to England from the Leeward Islands, can be seen on the platform, whilst the driver, James Strickland, is most probably at the controls at the other end, ready to depart.
