Steam Beneath the Red Star
Following WWII, when the Iron Curtain isolated Communist countries from the West, the opportunities for railway photography were severely restricted. East Bloc regimes considered railroad operations to be strategically vital and usually banned picture taking. Steam Beneath the Red Star, one of the first Cold War nostalgia books, is illustrated with 88 color and 369 black-and-white photographs, many obtained at great personal risk and under trying circumstances.

A photographic album devoted to steam locomotives and the people who depended on them for a livelihood.
48 pages - Size 230mm x 290mm - Soft Cover - 46 colour photos
