On the Move - the Transport Panel

The panel was made between 1995 and 2000 and was first exhibited at the Civic Hall during a reunion event of the Leeds Swordfish Appeal.

At that time the Tapestry workshop was at Holy Trinity Church and Kate and Betty thought it would save time and money to carry the panel through the streets of Leeds rather than hiring transport. Someone took a photograph of this and it appears on the Community Spirit Panel.

The background is made up of maps of Leeds illustrating it's growth from hamlet to town to city. Overlaying these are the various modes of transport including road, rail, water and air.


  1. Ah, this series should keep my DH amused for a while....

  2. Excellent, but does he know anything about the car in the previous posting?
