Cabinet 3: Railway Books for Boys
Ellison Hawks, My Book of Trains. London: Thomas Nelson, .
The Story of the Little Red Engine, The Adventures of Sammy the Shunter, The Little Red Train, Oi! Get Off Our Train, and The Three Little Railway Engines represent a small portion of books that are available for children on and about railways. While the books on display are from Webbers collection, his actual collecting focus was on the more serious aspects of railroads and railways: books and pamphlets on overseas railroad systems, blueprints of rolling stock, and books on gauges and signals. His ownership details are non-existent. He did not have an exlibris bookplate, nor did he sign any of his books. Whether he read them or not, they still present to the reader the wonderful, exciting world of rail.
