Looking for Something
B.R. AND N.C.B. 1960s STEAM MONOCHROME: 35mm
The pictures are roughly in chronological order with groups of images being featured by region and/or location. I never took many notes!
We lived in an era of no 'gen' and social media and what we picked up was by word or mouth or just by 'turning up'. Forays away from the
North-east were few and far between, as I had to work most week-ends. Travelling, apart from a few early platform ticket 'Nevering' jobs,
was usually by hitch-hiking and often never reaching my intended destinations! Musn't grumble, though. I enjoyed the adventure of it all!
As an aside, I did apply for and was given a lineside photography permit by the Public Relations & Publicity Dept. at York on submission
of a few photographs. This covered all the lineside between Central Station and South Pelaw and Central Station to Ryhope Signal Box!
