The bygone era of steam trains

Saturday 1st June at 1 pm in the West Room of the Orange Library/Gallery complex

An open invitation to all interested people with a love and fascination for the bygone era of steam trains to attend a presentation by a well known train archivist and photographer John Ward.

John, a Sydney based steam rail photographer and now Archivist with the Australian Railway Historical Society, is to be a  guest of O.R.M.M.A. for his presentation.  He will show a part of his collection and tell many of the stories associated with the photographic memorabilia.

John is very concerned, and will talk about the importance of preserving and documenting any photographs, and other memorabilia people may have.  As a volunteer to the A.R.H.S.he has great concerns about beautiful photographs that have been donated but have no documentation attached rendering them useless for preserving and archiving.  He will show and also talk about how all forms of film can be kept of the future.

Some of John's train and tram friends are also coming to Orange for the day.

Please join us for a most interesting presentation.  Entry is a small donation at the door.
