The Sunset of Steam / Dennis Moore

£19.99

Product description

Subtitle: A tribute in colour to the golden years of steam locomotives in South Africa. Publication date: 1990. Condition: Very good. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with few signs of wear other than a little light edge wear. Internally, the book is in very good condition - clean, tight and unmarked. Content: This book is an album of (mainly full-page) colour photographs by Dennis Moore of steam locomotives in South Africa, with an occasional page of accompanying text. "What has perhaps been more noticeable in South Africa than any other country is that the closing years [of steam locomotives] have been accompanied by regret, anguish, pleas and protest - not just by South African residents, as one would expect, but from all around the globe. South African steam has been ....a magnet to numerous enthusiasts and photographers who have long realised that this most magnificent machine blends with this superb country in such a way that cannot be readily found elsewhere. It is thus not only for the enthusiasts, railwaymen and others in South Africa that his book is intended, but also for the many visitors to the country who have been united in the 'International Fellowship of Steam' and for those who could not make the journey, but whose admiration for the splendour of steam remains undiminished. This all-colour souvenir of the glorious sunset years of steam in South Africa is a fitting tribute to the only machine ever made by man that can truly be said to live. Long may they do so." A must for any steam enthusiast.
