Leeds Bowling Green

Picture of grass cutting at the bowling green Woodhouse Moor, Leeds.

This bowling green on Woodhouse Moor was opened by the mayor of Leeds in May of 1906. Bowling on grass hereabouts is quite a popular pastime, but I think that its heyday is long past.

All over the city the grass cutters are out I have seen several city employees riding larger mowers but this man was using the smaller walk behind and steer type.

I took this photograph yesterday whilst walking back to the city centre from the University of Leeds campus. The day was bright but quite cloudy and despite the weather forecast there was no rain.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
