Railway Photographer Derek Huntriss

A lifetime of steam in pictures

On Tuesday 28th January 2020, President Philip Jackson welcomed to Coventry North Rotary Club, Derek Huntriss, an author and photographer of railways. Derek gave a very interesting illustrated talk about his life photographing many different types of railway stock, and steam trains, in different parts of the world. A number of the members and their ladies, raised some questions relating to when we experienced ‘steam’ sixty years ago.  Rotarian Brian Sharp thanked the speaker for his talk and President Philip presented a cheque to his charity, Breathe Easy Coventry, a branch of the British Lung Foundation, wishing him well for the future.  Rotarian Brian Sharp took the photographs.
