The Photographic Artistry of Rail Cameramen ; A tribute to the work of members of the Rail Camera Cl
'Rail Cameramen' features the photographic artistry of many of the UK's leading railway photographers who, as members of the Rail Camera Club, have been familiar figures at the lineside for many years.
The Rail Camera Club had its origins in the prestigious Railway Photographic Society which Maurice W Earley formed in 1922 and continued until 1976 when 'MWE', its Secretary throughout its 54 years, decided to 'retire'. Membership of the RPS was by invitation only, and over the years, virtually all of the top railway photographers were members.
As the result of the circulation of 'boxes' of prints for fellow members to see and comment on, the standard of railway photography improved significantly.
