February’s show will feature a selection of images from British cultural institutions historical photography collections. To start, a fascinating collection of photographs of the building of the Forth Rail Bridge during the 1880’s. Followed by the investigation photographs from the 1879 Tay Rail Bridge Disaster, showing a rather mangled up 4-4-0 loco after recovery, it’s rolling stock and bridge structure damage. Also we’ll take a glimpse back into the way of life in one of Britain’s major cities during the 1800’s/turn of the century, Birmingham, the machine shop to the world! Here we will see some road steam in action, possibly an unseen picture of a well known preserved Burrell at work! Bourneville and the steam machines that delivered the chocolate. We’ll take a look at a few interesting factory and street scenes from Birimingham too. Time permitting a few original engine images from around the tun of the century will make an appearance too. Hopefully this should be an interesting show, we look forward to seeing you on Feb 8th.
