Back Order

A collection of good quality black & white photographs from the archives of R C (Dick) Riley, featuring operations of the Southern Railway and later British Railways Southern Region around London. Dick Riley was a renowned photographer who captured over 18,000 photographs of railways around Britain from 1937 onwards.

The Southern Railway had by far the most complex of all the suburban railway systems that surrounded the capital. Apart from the main lines, often duplicated in consequence of history, there were also freight depots, suburban stations and even branches, not to mention the various London terminal stations.

The Southern Around London: The RC Riley Archive 1937-1964 Volume 4 draws on Dick Riley’s extensive archive to present views of the suburban area, depicting steam and electric trains, depots, yards and stations. It illustrates the variety of workings that existed in the years up to the 1960s. Extensive caption detail is provided for every photograph. 112 pages.
