The Golden Age of London's Railways in Old Photographs


In the first decade or so of the 20th century, the country was swept by the Picture Postcard collecting craze, with publishers and photographers competing to produce an ever expanding range of cards covering almost every aspect of Edwardian life. Prominent amongst these were railway subjects, with cards of most stations being issued, along with other scenes of railway interest such as engine sheds and viaducts, as well as the trains and locomotives of the various pre-Grouping companies. The majority of these cards are appearing in print for the first time and all are reproduced in colour within, including the sepia real photographs, to show exactly how they appear in real life. This was an age when the railway was king and road transport was only just beginning to take over. Consequently, there is much to entice and enjoy within these pages, for railway enthusiasts, postcard collectors, London historians or anyone interested in the Edwardian Age.
