Leeds 517 (former LPTB 2118) was one of three Felthams fitted with a pantograph in 1951. Following damage to overhead, the experiment was short-lived and they soon reverted to bow collectors.
I was told by the photographer (the late Roy Brooks) that he took this photo mid-afternoon after absconding from his brother's wedding reception. In hindsight, we are grateful he did, but no doubt his family felt otherwise!

Photo taken by Roy Brooks (Paul Haywood collection), March/April 1951, Corn Exchange, Leeds
