Richard Hardy  Collection


Mr Richard H N Hardy was a premium apprentice at Doncaster on the LNER. Most of his railway photographs include men with whom he worked which enabled him to write a comprehensive caption for each negative. The majority of the first 308 negatives were taken with a Brownie 620 box camera during the War when photographing railways was forbidden and therefore are especially interesting.

Richard had a remarkable railway career during which he learned much about the fellowship of men and the joys and frustrations working with real and practical railwaymen. In order to share his experiences with you all, Richard has donated this fascinating record of

the social history of the railways to The Transport Treasury.

Richard’s new book: ‘A Life on the Lines’.


A Life on the Lines is a glorious photographic record of Britain’s railways towards the end of the Age of Steam, as seen through the eyes of legendary railwayman Richard Hardy.  More than 150 images taken on Richard’s Brownie box camera, and by other railway photographers, such as Dr Ian Allen and Richard Riley, are accompanied by Richard’s meticulously detailed captions and entertaining anecdotes that truly evoke the speed, heat and dust of the footplate.


If you would like to order a copy of the book there is a link to Posthouse Publishing on the ‘Links’ page or go to www.posthousepublishing.com.
