the 1950s and early 1960s, as a youth and a young man I pursued my hobby
of railway photography and took many hundreds of pictures in and around
Pontefract. Although most of them were taken as pictures of steam locomotives
and trains many of them show incidental features in the background that
have since disappeared. It occurred to me that it might be of interest
to submit a monthly portfolio of photographs illustrating some aspect of
Pontefractís steam railways and covering the whole of the local railway
system over a period of several months. Peter Cookson
