    Thanks for putting the article on and for acknowledging the role of the LTHS. However one person in particualr needs to have his role acknowledged. Jim Soper, author of ‘Leeds Transport designed the whole scheme, supervised it’s construction and painted most of the railings himself. In the past he was responsible for building the Red Lion and the Bowes Lyon Bridge. Without his drive and enthusiasm this rpoject would not have taken place. Just as an aside the railing came froma gasworks in the Stockport area and the bandstand was originally donated by the town of Atherton, now part of the Borough of Trafford.
