This is a book with a difference. Within 112 pages of art paper printed illustrations we have examples of the work of a Yorkshire Newspaper Photographer who travelled both within his home county and sometimes beyond. Neither is it set within a specific period but instead there are images of everyday and unique scenes, events and incidents covering both the immediate pre-war and then the post war period almost up to the demise of steam.

Press photographers were invariably equipped with the best equipment and had an uncanny knack of sniffing out what was either to take place or indeed had happened – likely through cultivating the friendship of a railwayman or two! As such they would appear on scene at both the good and the bad times whereas today the ‘negative’ incidents would be strictly taboo to most.

The result is a book of images taken through the lens of a skilled individual able to make his audience take notice. RAILWAY MEMORIES. The Travels of a Yorkshire Newspaper Photographer will certainly do the same for the reader.
