O Winston Link • 1950s

link03This is a photograph by the great US railway photographer, O Winston Link. I’ve posted about him before…I love this photo; you get a sense of the scale of the machines, but also of how dirty and battered these locos were by the 1950s…and why the railways, eveywhere, had to modernise.

The night photography and the machines give Link’s images a powerful sense of 1950s US glamour…
