Sale of Casserleys’ Railway Negative Collection – 21st September 2019

Father and son, Henry & Richard Casserley need no introduction to the Irish railway enthusiast community as both were frequent visitors to Ireland over the years. As far back as the 1930s Henry visited many parts of Ireland where railways no longer reach and recorded what he found for posterity. His photographs have featured in numerous books and magazines in the decades since, including his own definitive work “Outline of Irish Railway History” published by David & Charles in 1974.

Now the entire collection of some 80,000 negatives is being sold off with the first part of the disposal taking place on the 21st September through GW Railwayana Auctions of Worcestershire. Your chance perhaps to pick-up that unique Casserley image that you always wanted – but be warned prices are likely to be steep!
