Rokeby Collection - Treasures From Our Archive

The Reverend Hubert Denys Eddowes Rokeby collected a vast number of postcards covering all the stations and halts in the United Kingdom. Where he was unable to find postcards or pre-existing photographs, he took his own pictures capturing the state of the railways before the Beeching cuts in the 1960s.The NMRW holds the Welsh collection which consists of 9 albums, some including route maps showing where the lines ran.
