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.
John Armstrong is an avid postcard collector who has spent the past decade building an unparalleled collection of historical Irish postcards. He has amassed an impressive collection from every part of Ireland, especially that of his beloved county Kildare. John has a passionate interest in local history and is a qualified Irish tour guide since 2018.
