Steam-driven Boy and Jim S-W.

Thanks for you're responces and Jim thanks for the Snow Hill Link, although very sad!

When I was "spotting" at both New Street and Snow Hill in the late 50's I, sadly, didn't have access to a camera and wouldn't have been able to have afforded the film and processing anyway.

I have found a couple of interesting books on the second hand shelves:

New Street Remembered (1854-1967) by Donald J Smith and
Birmingham Snow Hill, A First Class Return. Both bring back memories.

Philip Hawkins, railway artist, was a Birmingham Lad and has done a number of excellant paintings of both Stations. His Book: Tracks on Canvas, has been "remaindered recently. I picked up a copy for £7.99 and several of the Birmingham Paintings are in it.

Best wishes,

John H-T.
