A Railwayman's View: The Photographs of Ronnie Gee

6 In Stock

Ronnie Gee was a lifelong railway enthusiast and excellent photographer, who recorded the railway scene around Manchester from the 1940s to the 1970s. During this period he amassed a collection of over 2500 black & white negatives and colour slides, from which this collection has been drawn.

This volume focuses on the main line between Manchester and Stockport, illustrating the remarkable variety of steam, diesel and electric locomotives that operated over the line in that 40 year period. The book also records the changes to infrastructure in the period, not least the electrification of the line that took place in the 1960s.

The majority of photos date from the steam era and are in black & white, but a selection of colour images from the 1960s and 1970s are also included.

All the photographs are presented in one-per page format and are accompanied by detailed extended captions. Landscape format has been used to best display this interesting photographic archive. 96 pages.
