A Useful Reference Volume.

edwardianFor anyone with a love of Edwardian steam locomotives, this book should prove most enjoyable.

 

There is a Forward describing the original photographer and some introductory pages setting the pictures in context of place and time.

 

However, the major portion of the book is captioned pictures of engines.  starting with the singles, then 4-4-0's, 4-6-0's and tank engines.

 

The pictures are all claimed to be previously unpublished.

 

An interesting collection of pictures that should be useful for the modeller.

 

Most are set around Taplow.

 

My only criticism is that the pictures are far too small. 

The book would have been far more useful as a two volume book with one picture to a page.
