Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 2 video trailer

June 20, 2023

Quick on the heels of Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 1, I followed with Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 2. These were essentially one book in two parts. Between them, they covered the entirety of the July 1958 Ontario steam photographic safari of John Rehor, Don Wood and Herb Harwood. Literally, we leave the action in the first volume one warm summer evening at Bayview, and pick it up the next morning at sunrise overlooking the Allandale locomotive shop track. The second volume was released in November 2019.

I invite you to watch this short video trailer, which gives you an overview of Speed Graphics and Steam 1958! vol. 2:
