A nostalgic journey through Ireland’s past.

John Armstrong takes us on a railway journey from Kingsbridge Station in Dublin to Waterford and beyond, using Edwardian postcards to illustrate the many towns, villages and topographical features that the traveller would have viewed through the train window or disembarked to explore at a more leisurely pace.


The modern readers is given a unique insight into the world of nineteenth-century railway travellers as they traversed the Irish countryside, using a new and efficient transport system that opened up the country in new ways.


This gloriously illustrated guide records the sights and scenes the traveller encountered on his travels.
