Taken by Trains: The Life and Photographs of William Nash, 1909-1952
In 1922, when William Nash was only 13 years old, he began taking railway pictures. This new volume looks at the wider spread of Nash’s pictorial material around Britain and examines his professional life as a career railwayman during which he was involved in some pioneering studies. His youngest daughter Kate Robinson and transport historian Robert Forsythe have shared the task of presenting his material.
A series of retrospective exhibitions were staged in Cumbria to mark the 50th anniversary of his death in 2002-2003. An associated volume entitled Cumbrian Railway Photographer is published by The Oakwood Press.
