Early British railways
by Christian Barman
with sixteen reproductions of old prints and drawings
This quaint illustration recalls Britain’s heritage in the world of railways. With the invention of Robert Stephenson’s Rocket in 1829, Britain was at the forefront of locomotive design for many years, and brought railway systems to other countries in the Empire. This Regency style illustration creates a link to a bygone age by adapting the design tropes and colours of the time.
