"Birmingham New Street Station Through Time"

Front cover of third book

My third book was published by Amberley Publishing in mid-September 2013.  It was inspired by many of my father's photographs of New Street Station taken between 1947 and 1965.  However, to tell the full story I needed the help of many others and they are all acknowledged on the final page.  The book starts with the building of Curzon Street Station and tries to cover the whole history to date, and into the future thanks to artists impressions provided by Network Rail.  I will admit that some of the pictures have been published in my other books or in 'D J Norton's Pictorial Survey of the West Midlands', but they are included in this book to help illustrate the passage of time.  There are many unpublished pictures from other sources.  I like to think of the book as a local history book about a railway station rather than a railway book, but I'm sure many of the pictures will be of interest to rail fans.

The ISBN number is 978 1 4456 1095 5 and it retails at £14.99 in paperback cover.  As well as being available direct from Amberley, it's also on Amazon.
