Book Launch: The Railway Photographs of Norman Johnston - 22 April 2015

Colourpoint Books invite you to the launch of "The Railway Photographs of Norman Johnston".

The book launch will be held at the Malone House, Belfast on Wednesday 22 April 2015, 7.00pm for 7.30pm. Light refreshments will be served.

Norman is widely regarded as one of Ireland’s foremost railway historians, and has amassed a huge collection of remarkable photographs of Irish railways. This book includes some of what Norman regarded as the best or most interesting images that he took during the pivotal period between 1964 and 1973. The pictures are presented in roughly chronological order and include some CIE as well as UTA and NIR. All are accompanied by extended captions.

Norman began writing the book during the last two months of his life, completing the manuscript just seven days before his death on 31 August 2014. This book is both a fascinating record of Irish railways during this formative period, and a fitting tribute to a man who has contributed much to both the transport scene and the lives of those who knew him.
