Photographs of British steam engines (railway locomotives) from British Locomotives Illustrated by W. J. Bell, M.I.Loco.E., A & C. Black Ltd., London, 1933.

The photographs in this book are out of copyright because they were taken before 1944 in the UK, and are either by the author or are anonymous. I have not been able to find details about the author, and cannot ascertain the status of the text: it could have copyright protection for 70 years after the author’s death. I have reproduced only the captions of the photographs for now, and not the complete text.
