A Streetcar Named Desire

By saltireblue    
Went to Oslo's trolley and tram museum. This is from the interior of a model from the 50's. The seats look like leather, but the conductress that shouted "Tickets, please" was had a face more leather-like than these...

Hope you all have a fine Bank Holiday weekend...those of you that have the luxury of an extra day off. For us mere mortals it's back to work tomorrowSad

Thanks for all the recent comments and is appreciated.

Thanks for bothering,

Recession, light, and that vertical on the right.
Looking forward to seeing your double entendre.

The call "cum oan, get aft" comes to mind: a well chosen viewpoint for this interior shot and with excellent use of light on the rank of seats.
Like the composition & the silver light ... Great indoor image

As the light on the seats increases the background above grows darker.
Love the angle, the repeats, the subject too . . .

All Clippies the world over seem to have had an abrasive tongue, the Glasgow ones were impressive to say the least.
The Edinburgh trams had wooden seats as I recall. They all reeked of cigarette smoke, all gone now.
