Poster for Shipley Glen Tramway by Geoff Tynan

This image melds two images separated by time to give us a poignant reminder of the rich history of the Shipley Glen Tramway.

Geoff Tynan writes: The idea for creating the advert came about one day as I was looking through my collection of postcards and information collated over the years and came across one photo of the Glen Tramway taken, I think, around WW1 (judging by the chap in uniform sat on the left). This got me thinking - I was sure I had taken a digital photo at the same place on the platform.

I checked my photos and there it was. I scanned the old postcard in to the computer and using photo editing software blended the 2 images together to create a ghost-like effect.
If I’d had this idea 20 years ago it would have been a much more difficult image to create using traditional photographic materials and equipment.

This is the advantage of using Digital technology: it is flexible, instant and can be manipulated, bringing visual elements together to convey the tramway's history and for passengers who step on board - a connection with the past.
