Victorian & Edwardian Railways from old photographs

From the thousands of old railway photographs which he has examined Jeoffry Spence has selected those of social and human rather than purely technical interest. As well as sections on Locomotives, Rolling Stock, Staff and Uniforms and Track Construction, there are chapters on the Services which grew up to cater for the newly-mobile and on the Excursions made possible by the spread of the railways -from a visit to Doncaster Races by Edward VII on a Royal train to one of the first ‘football specials’ at Park Royal in 1908.
