ellyBelly Publications is replacing Lineside Photographics…. It has been obvious for some time that the Lineside Photographics doesn’t really encompass what we want to do. So, in 2021, we have changed our name to ellyBelly Publications. Moreover, with the change comes some exciting news for the future.
In November 2020 we launched our first book (‘A Railwayman’s View – The Photographs of Ronnie Gee’ by Eddie Johnson & Ian Simpson). This is the first of what will be a series of books showing the photographic collections of ex-Railwaymen. They were often best placed to know when that special working would be running, or had access to places not available to the general public. The second book is in the final stages of editing, so look out for some news on this soon!
I have known John Stiles for many, many years. His photos often appear in the railway press for his steam photography. John rekindled his love of aviation and all things vintage, and he has a vast collection of images we hope to bring to you in the future. A small collection of his photos are available through the website.
John also has a love of portrait photography. So, we will also bring some Glamour to our collections, as well as some vintage recreations.
However, our love for railway photography remains, so we will be adding to our collections throughout the year.
In addition, don’t forget our Scan & Restore service. Many of the older negatives we have in our collections require restoration. When photographs were taken seventy years ago, they need some tender love and care to bring them back to their best. Contact us if you have any queries on our service, or have specific requirements.
Please don’t forget that we are always on the look out for photographers. We can sell your images or help you publish that book! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
