Very Good/Very Good. 4to 1851528148 This volume contains some of the finest photographs of railway subjects in the British Isles; they came from the cameras of one man, Bishop Eric Treacy, a doyen among railway photographers. Unlike most railway enthusiasts Treacy was a photographer first. There is no doubt that the smoke, steam, light and shade, so much part of the railway, as well as steam locomotives of all shapes and sizes, tempted him and in the event he came as near as any man to capturing these scenes through the lens of a camera. During his lifetime Eric Treacy made many friends; this book is a tribute by three of them. Over the years it was natural that so eminent a photographer should have his work well published; this book contains some 300 of his best photographs ranging from Southern England to Scotland and from mighty Pacific locomotives to the dirty unloved goods train. It is not generally realised that Eric Treacy ventured into the realms of colour photography and 24 pages in colour testify to his skill in this medium, blending with the black and white reproductions. As a man of the Church his parishes embraced railway stations and locomotive depots, nowhere more so than on Merseyside where he became very much an accepted part of the Edge Hill scene in the late 1930s both as a vicar and photographer. Even during his ultimate Church appointment as Bishop of Wakefield he found a little time to relax behind his camera, though now pointing at diesels and electrics as well as preserved steam locomotives. Great Railway Photographs is not just another good book of railway pictures, it is a classic that will be treasured by railway buffs for years to come.
