No Trams On Leeds Bridge

Leeds Bridge Roadway

This view of the roadway on Leeds Bridge is I guess quite similar to the one in the moving picture made in 1888 by Louis Le Prince. There are two major differences, one there are no trams these days they have been replaced by buses and the other difference is that I was facing away from the city centre.

In this photograph you can see the building that Louis Le Prince used when from an upstairs window of No 19 Bridge End, then Hicks the Ironmongers, he recorded a moving recoding of the traffic. The building is painted cream and white and is on the LH side at the far end of the bridge.
