The Last Years of Steam around Worcester (Fonthill)

1 In Stock

A unique collection of unpublished photographs from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s covering railways around Worcester.

Robert ‘Ellis’ James-Robertson lived in Worcester from the mid-1950s and travelled around the country, building-up a large railway archive.

This book of mainly unpublished colour and black & white photographs has been created entirely from his collection within a 35-mile radius of Worcester. It will appeal to railway enthusiasts, modellers and those with an interest in local history.

The period covered is from the mid-1950s through to the mid-1960s; steam is the predominant traction throughout together with occasional shots of early diesel power. Coverage includes parts of Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire, plus the Birmingham area.

Each photograph is accompanied by a caption and an introduction to Worcester's railways is also included. 128 pages.
