This work depicts a tram stop outside the Estacion di Francia railway station in Barcelona. It was Mason's first exercise in high relief and he wrote that he was inspired by 'the strong sun and the opulent, sculptural forms of the people ... The almost ritualistic arrival of the trams before the solemn, sunlit grandeur of the station was irrestible ... there was an attempt to suggest that the people depicted were being carried away to their destiny and I even placed the window-bars before the driver in the form of a cross'.
