Trams and Lowry


A little trip to Manchester, by rail from Shropshire, and by tram from central Manchester to “The Lowry”, the gallery established on the derelict docklands to display, among other things, the works of L S Lowry. Can’t say the “other things” were quite my cup of tea – World Cup photography and football art (!), but it was great to see the originals of those “matchstalk men and dogs” which we’ve been familiar with for many years.

The new(ish) Metrolink tramway through the docklands is great fun – lots of ups and downs and tight curves. The rail journey? – bang on time both ways, but the crammed conditions in two- and three-car trains are hardly going to tempt motorists into greener habits…
