Product Description
Stations and Lineside Views in and Around London features photographs taken by retired British medical council researcher/author Dr B. W. L. Brooksbank and captions by railway author Peter Tuffrey. The photographs span the last years of steam traction from 1946 to 1962 and the book uses the M25 motorway as a perimeter to define the London area. All the capital’s mainline railway stations belonging to the four former constituent railway companies are featured. Over 3,000 negatives were scanned while only approximately 250 photographs have been selected for inclusion to maintain a very high standard and give a real indication of this last gasp of steam. It is remarkable that when good photographic materials were painfully scarce after the Second World War, Brooksbank achieved exceptional results from limited resources. Some of his images from the late 1940s are not only pin-sharp, but exude an almost palpable atmosphere of Britain’s rundown post-war railways. He has captured freight trains, expresses and local trains along with staff carrying out their mundane duties or blatantly hanging off a locomotive cab eager to be caught on camera forever. Brooksbank has photographed many of the railway stations in a dilapidated condition before massive renovation work
