Edwardian Railways in Postcards – Second Delivery will be a third selection from my postcard collection and those of fellow collectors, and a companion to Edwardian Railways in Postcards. The structure of the book will follow that of the first volune, offering a region-based collection of postcards – some very rarely seen in print – celebrating the golder era of the railway. Like my earlier two collections, Edwardian Mining in Old Postcards and Edwardian Railways in Postcards, this third offering will be illustrated throughout in colour, darwing on the wealth of tinted postcards published before the outbreak of the Great War. The proposed cover picture shows Colwall Station in Herefordshire, from a beautifully tinted postcard published by Tilley's of Ledbury and sent to an address in Wolverhampton in 1907.
Completion is envisaged by the end of 2018.
