The Railroad Photography of J. Parker Lamb
by Lamb, J Parker (Photographer), and Frailey, Fred W (Introduction by), and Keefe, Kevin P

Overview -
The Railroad Photography of J. Parker Lamb showcases the black-and-white imagery of a master of the craft. Parker Lamb came of age in the South and the Midwest during a time of great transition on railroads in the United States. New technology was replacing the steam locomotives and labor-intensive practices that had dominating railroading for more than a century. Cameras in hand, Lamb bore witness to the end of that era and continued to vividly portray all that followed. His lyrical photographs depict new diesels, waning passenger trains, blossoming freight business, and many of the people who worked in, and were captivated by, the great American institution of the railroad. A biographical essay by noted transportation journalist Fred W. Frailey explores Lamb's life and photographic contributions, while captions by former Trains magazine editor Kevin P. Keefe add context to Lamb's imagery.
