A RAILWAYMAN's VIEW: The Photographs of Ronnie Gee ISBN: 9781527272798


by: E. M. Johnson​ & I. Simpson

Based all his life In Manchester, Ronnie Gee, was a life-long railwayman who carried his camera wherever he worked. Beginning his career at Longsight shed In 1943, Ronnie soon transferred to the signalling side of the railway. Working many of the ex-LMS and LNER signalboxes in south Manchester, his knowledge of signal-ling was exemplary. Taking advantage of his lineside position, Ronnie was able to capture unique action shots from positions unavailable to other photographers.

After Ronnie's death in 2016 his collection was bequeathed to Manchester-based enthusiast and author, Eddie Johnson. Working with Ronnie's negatives and transparencies, Eddie and fellow Manchester Locomotive Society member, Ian Simpson, have produced a magnificent album of Ronnie's Images.

This initial volume covers the railway from Manchester London Road (today's Piccadilly) to Wilmslow via Stockport and Styal.​
