I think these are actually trolleybuses. The last trams in Doncaster ran in June 1935 (to Brodsworth).

A mass of coaches and single-decker buses parked up. A crowd must be nearby: Doncaster racecouse is nearby

The biplanes we've got used to seeing in shots of aerodromes taken in the 1920s have largely gone - only one in this photograph. Monoplanes have become popular with flying clubs, by 1935, it seems

The photograph must have been taken on the day of a race meeting. The racecourse is just out of shot to the right. Masses of cars and coaches and even a few trams parked up beyond the football ground. Perhaps the day of the 'Doncaster Cup'?

Doncaster Rovers Football Club was founded in 1879. The club re-established here having lost its original ground to the army.

Belle Vue was the home of Doncaster Rovers from 1922 to 2006.

The ground was affectionately called by fans as 'Old Belle Vue' or OBV.
