The Photographer

This appears to be the photographer and railway worker who took many railway photographs in the 1950s.  Who is he?               The Railway Snapper who took Railway Photos in and around Edinburgh in the 1950s and 1960s.  Who was he?

The Photographer

Here are two photos of the man who is thought to have taken the photo at the top of this page and other railway photos in and around Edinburgh in the 1950s and 1960s.

 Archie Foley, Joppa, believes that he was a railway worker when he took these photos.  If you recognise him, please email me to let me know.

Thank you.

Peter Stubbs, Edinburgh
