Sheffield is well known for its hills and at the top of one to the south of the city centre is the delightful Graves Park. Just past the upper entrance was the tram terminus, an exposed spot on a cold winter’s day.

In the distance a single deck bus, a new mode of transport then, offers more flexible routes - a glimpse of what was to come! Tram 152 was built in 1930 by W Hill of South Shields and ran until 1956 when sadly the entire tram system was dismantled.

This painting really captures the clear light of a frosty winters day.
