David Clark's Southern Odyssey Part 1 (Transport Treasury)

Back Order

The photographer David Clark may not be as well-known as some of his compatriots, whilst the name Ron White almost certainly will be recognised. This book combines the images of one and the charismatic writing style of the other to create an album of colour photographs taken around the Southern Region during the late 1950s and early 1960s.

This volume concentrates on the Eastern section of the Southern Region before the end of the steam era in 1961. During the time before the run-down of steam, pride in the job still shone through and trains ran to the published timetable, in no small part, due to the efforts of the railwaymen of the time.

David Clark was fortunately in a position to record the final years of steam on the Kent main lines, and usually in good weather conditions, supplemented by odd branch line outings and a little excursion or two across the border into Surrey and Sussex.

For his part, Ron White has drawn on his extensive knowledge of both the photographer and the subject to describe both in his inimitable fashion. Photographs are presented in full-page format with a caption at the foot of each page. A short introduction to David Clark and his photography is also included. Hardback. 80 pages.
