Harness Maker

I think that this is probably the last picture for the time being that was taken at the Victorian Town at the Ironbridge Gorge Museum and it shows a portrait of the harness maker in his workshop.

The Victorian Town is a brilliant venue for photography, so put it on your list of places to visit. The Ironbridge Gorge Museum is close to Telford in Shropshire and the area was the cradle of the Industrial Revolution in England.

I believe that this steam locomotive came from the scrapyard that we saw in yesterday’s post, so after rusting and mouldering for many years in South Wales, and after thousands of hours of restoration work it is seen in pristine condition on the Severn Valley Railway in this photo from the 80s.

Another scanned negative, itself restored, and seen for the first time.

This is a view of a departure from Bridgnorth, Shropshire, England on the Severn Valley Railway that was taken on black and white film in the 1980s. I have recently been scanning some of my old negatives, so this is the first time this picture has seen the light of day.
