Steam in the English Landscape

£19.95

Description

By Michael Welch

The white cliffs of Dover, the soaring spire of Salisbury cathedral and the distinctive
Blackpool Tower are all iconic landmarks of the English landscape. For almost 150 years
steam trains were also an integral part of this rich heritage. Steam locomotives puffed
sedately along delightful rural branch lines, long-distance trains hauled by mighty
express passenger locomotives thundered along the main arteries, while other routes
were worked at full capacity carrying vital goods traffic. In the late 1950s colour
photography grew in popularity and many scenes of everyday operation were recorded
for posterity. Using some of the best available images, this all-colour album vividly brings
to life the final ten years or so of steam in the English landscape.
