Title The Last Steam Railway in America

Author Link, O. Winston


ISBN: 9780810982017

Condition: New

Format: Hardcover



When you think of American Steam trains you think of O. Winston Link, whose perferctly exposed images were second to none

There is something about the superb railroad images of O. Winston Link that makes his photographs look like they were captured on an impossibly intricate model railroad layout. Even the people, frozen by Link's precisely calibrated banks of flashbulbs, take on the qualities of posed figures. But these iconic scenes of the final days of steam-powered railroading on the Norfolk and Western Railway?the last American railroad to abandon steam?are in fact perfectly realized moments of America from a half-century ago. Some of the black and white images here were published in Link's first book, Steam, Steel & Stars; others are photos from the project that did not appear in the book, including working portraits of railroad personnel, and a selection of vividly hued color photographs as well.
