Western Ways - The R C Riley Archive 1937-1964

Price £14.50


The name R C ‘Dick’ Riley will be familiar to several generations of railway enthusiasts. Starting in 1937, Dick Riley captured over 18,000 black and while UK railway images. Even though it has been over 40 years since an album devoted to his work was published, only a handful have ever been seen before. This new book aims to address that omission. “Western Ways” is the first book in a series dedicated to Riley’s railway passion. Dick loved all things railway: locomotives, trains of all sorts, infrastructure and railway people, and that is what you will find inside the book. “Western Ways” showcases some of R C Riley’s best photography with a fantastic selection of images captured during the late Great Western Railway and British Rail periods.
