Decline of Steam (1965)

Together with Steam Portfolio (go back to the first part), Decline of Steam is one of the most fascinating railway books in my collection. It was published by Ian Allan in 1965, three years before the end of regular steam service in UK (August 5, 1968). All photos were taken by Colin T. Gifford, who also wrote the preface.


Insieme a Steam Portfolio (torna alla prima parte), Decline of Steam, pubblicato dalla celeberrima casa inglese Ian Allan, Ŕ l'altro libro della mia collezione dedicato agli ultimi tempi del vapore regolare inglese, che scomparirÓ appena tre anni pi¨ tardi (5 agosto 1968). Tutte le foto sono di Colin T. Gifford, di cui riproduco anche la prefazione, che inquadra la fotografia ferroviaria in chiave decisamente moderna.
