Greeting Card - “Train Guard And Tobacco-Pipe”    

Card C01 - Train Guard And Tobacco-Pipe

Photo by Colin Pearson. Colin says:

This photo is of a British Railways Train Guard with his tobacco pipe, checking the railway platform from his Guard’s Van window.

Taken in September 1972 on Ilford FP4 film, in my ergonomically all-time favourite camera, my Asahi Pentax S1a with a Takumar F/2.8 lens. Sadly there are still a number of ‘old film’ artefacts evident in the picture in spite of many hours of careful recovery in Photoshop!

After some additional research by my son, I’m now sure that the railway station is Crewe Station (Lancashire), and that the train is one belonging to London Midland Scottish (LMS), not London Midland Region (LMR) as I’d entered into the photo’s IPTC Caption field.”
