T. E. Williams: The Lost Colour Collection Volume 2 (Irwell)

Back Order

A second album of high quality colour photographs from the collection of the late Tom Williams. Tom is best known for his extensive black-and-white photographic work, donated to the National Railway Museum in York by his family after his untimely death at the age of forty-nine in 1980. His little-known 35mm colour transparency work, however, has been under restoration since May 2014. Seen in print for the first time in the book `T.E.Williams: The Lost Colour Collection Volume 1’ published in March 2017, this second volume dips again into Tom’s unique slide archive to concentrate on the decade 1954 to 1964. It concentrates on the Western Region of British Railways, with sections devoted exclusively to the King Class and Swindon Works, but also includes the results of Tom’s eclectic travels up and down the country, Provides a unique insight into the world of a passionate and talented photographer, who wasn’t afraid to experiment with colour film at a time when most of his peers believed that black-and-white was the only route to successful railway photography. All photographs are presented in one-per-page format with a caption at the foot of each page. A short introduction to the photographer is also included. Hardback. 124 pages.
