Travel around the world with photographer William E. Botkin in his quest for evocative black-and-white photographs of steam locomotives with the cover story of the Spring 2020 issue of Railroad Heritage. Inside, you can also learn what it takes to make a living as a railway artist with a glimpse into the life and work of Philip D. Hawkins, one of England’s foremost painters of trains. Gregory P. Ames presents the compelling story of a 1903 photograph and its creator, Dudley Walker, while touching on notions of pictorial photography as advertising art as well as evolving gender narratives in railroading. Arjan den Boer takes you all the way back to the Stone Age with his “Art of the Railway Poster” column, while additional columns by Hailey Paige and Adrienne Evans bring you up to date on our traveling exhibitions and collections, respectively. Finally, we share our ever-growing list of annual donors, the people whose generosity make possible all of our work at the Center for Railroad Photography & Art.
