Lincolnshire Railways, by Stewart Squires
Published by Lincolnshire Books in 1998, 45 pages. Paperback (N4745P1)
From the rear side cover: Stewart Squires is well known as a writer on many aspects of Lincolnshire history. He is probably best known for his books and articles on the history of railways.
The source for this book has been the collection of photographs from the stock held by the County Council within its libraries and museums. They illustrate the railway scene in Lincolnshire, including the south bank of the Humber. In this book you can meet the people, at work and out for the day; see the buildings; the engines and engineering; goods and passenger trains' industry and accidents' and that aspect difficult to define, what today we call infrastructure. On the way it includes the odd, unusual and unique.
Lincolnshire is a county of contrasts, and its railways are no exception with a rich heritage illustrated in this volume giving a very readable pleasure to the reader.
The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, with only very light nibbling and wear along the edges and corners, the spine is intact and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
