Merthyr Imp 729 Posted September 15, 2017 Report Share Posted September 15, 2017 Having bored everybody with first some of my old football programmes followed by some old theatre programmes I thought I'd now start a new series about books which I have accumulated over the years and which are of significant interest concerning Nottingham and Notts. A lot of people will already have many of these books, but there may be some that people have not come across. A large proportion of them deal with transport matters, including this first one. The only order they are in is the order they appear on my bookshelves. Other than a few suggestions and some guesswork I don't intend to provide details of where (and if) the books can be bought as that can easily be found with an Internet search. First is this large softback book which appeared in 1998. T. G. Hepburn was a Nottingham man, and the book is made up of a selection of his railway photographs covering the period from about 1919 to 1979 together with some biographical notes on him There are large number of high quality photos taken at both the Victoria and Midland Stations plus some at London Road Low Level and many at other locations in and around the city plus several at Grantham in particular. The book may still be available from the likes of Amazon. Front cover is a painting of a scene at the north end of Grantham station c1933. Back cover shows B17 class 'Nottingham Forest' at Victoria on 3 June 1939. 3 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
