A Railwayman’s View – The Photographs of Ronnie Gee
by E.M. Johnson & I.Simpson
We have now launched our first book, A Railwayman’s View – The Photographs of Ronnie Gee. The book has 96 pages of Colour and Black & White images taken by Ronnie during his time on the railway in the South Manchester area. Some profits will be donated to a leading UK Cancer Charity who looked after Ronnie towards the end of his life.
The book features steam and electric traction between Manchester London Road (now Piccadily), Stockport and Wilmslow stations. Ronnie had a knack of being in the right place at the right time. There are some real gems within the book. The distance between Crewe and Stockport/Manchester was just right for running-in turns from recently outcropped locomotives from Crewe Works. We featured one such photograph in a previous post.
The photographs are of a high quality, and have been restored to their full glory, despite being nearly 70 years old in some cases. It is hoped that this will be the first volume of Ronnie’s photographs. His collection totals 2,500 images, some from the 1940s, and some that were taken in his last days as Station Master of Stockport Station.
