Portrait of a Princess by John Morris
Clear

The 1930’s steam locomotive Princess Elizabeth taking on water at night.
“Princess Elizabeth” was one of two experimental pacific locomotives designed by William Stanier for the LMS. They were a success and with certain modification borne out of the experience they had with the two locomotive an entire class was built.

I bought my first camera in the Isle of Man when I was 8 years old and have loved photography ever since. The sixties were my teenage years and, though I took a wide range of subjects, steam trains were my favourite topic.
I took my first wedding when I was 14 and though the couple loved the album I produced, I have to admit it was not my best work! Although I have worked professionally as a photographer I have never lost the enjoyment I get from taking pictures.
