When steam finished on British Railways there were some photographers who simply put away their cameras and which included certain of the famous ‘names’ of railway photography.
Looking beyond these shores to where steam still flourished others from the same genre recognised places still worth visiting and one of these was Mozambique and one of those photographers, Peter Gray.
Now Peter’s colour views from visits made to Mozambique and Angola, at the time both Portuguese colonies, may be seen for the first time. Witness then relics of a bygone age running alongside massive Beyer Garratts together with the odd interloper as non-steam traction attempts to make an impression. The whole is lovingly captioned by Ron White, he a fan of railways and steam especially worldwide and who brings to the text his inimitable charm.
