From the late 1940s on, Wallace W. Abbey masterfully combined journalistic and artistic vision to transform everyday moments in transportation into magical photographs. Abbey, a photographer, journalist, historian, and railroad industry executive, helped people from many different backgrounds understand and appreciate what was often taken for granted: a world of locomotives, passenger trains, big-city terminals, small-town depots, and railroaders. During his lifetime he witnessed and photographed sweeping changes in the railroading industry from the steam era to the era of diesel locomotives and electronic communication.Wallace W. Abbey: A Life in Railroad Photographyprofiles the life and work of this legendary photographer and showcases the transformation of transportation and photography after World War II. Featuring more than 175 exquisite photographs in an oversized format,Wallace W. Abbeyis an outstanding tribute to a gifted artist and the railroads he loved.

The book features more than 175 gorgeous photos from Abbeys collection, as well as details about Abbeys work ranging from his time at Trains magazine in Milwaukee to running public relations for the Milwaukee Road during the firms high-profile bankruptcy.

This superb oversize volume showcases the best railroad photographs of Wallace Abbey selected from the nearly 25,000 black and white images made during the course of his life, a collection that is now archived at the Center for Railroad Photography and Art in Lake Forest, Illinois.
