PLEASANY SURPRISE

STEAM RAILWAY PHOTOGRAPHS

Oh what a pleasant surprise to see these familiar black and white steam railway photographs of Peter Cookson's.  These incredible photographs show a time past - when Pontefract was an important railway junction and industrial hub - alas not so now.

Even as a lad of 12 I can remember cycling down to Baghill railway station to have a chat or most of the time annoy him with Geoff - the station clerk. Again a time now gone.

Many thanks for this.
