Portrait of Steam (Amberley)

Back Order

Originally published in hardback in 1967 and already re-issued on several occasions, Eric Treacy’s tribute to steam has stood the test of time and has now been re-issued again in softback. He himself admitted the book was a selection of his most popular photographs of steam locomotives in various locations and, in his words, was intended as ‘a “portrait” – an attempt to show the steam engine in every kind of setting and mood … an impression rather than a balanced selection.’ Scotland and the North of England feature strongly as, using close on 400 black & white photographs, he succeeds in capturing the essence of steam. Black & white photographs. 192 pages.
