The Major R.J.W. Ind Collection of Historical Photographs
The Road Locomotive Society have been working on the production of a book covering the Historical Photographs of Major R.J.W. Ind. This new book will offer high quality digital scans of the original glass plate negatives that were donated to the Society in 1959 when Major Ind passed away. Additional unpublished images are included and some wider based captions covering the history of the engines and where possible the owners. A limited production run has been printed and will be available to purchase following the official launch at the Societies Spring Visit on May 13th.
The book will be priced at £30 plus £5 postage. The Society will add to the website shop nearer to its availability in May 2023.
We are confident this book will find an enthusiastic home for the discerning collector of the vast collection of images held by the Society and will be in the same format as the earlier Traction Engine Archive volumes. This can be purchased from our online shop.
