THE OLD BERMUDA RAILWAY — Engineer and Conductor
Wow. What a find. I have just stumbled across the Flickr page of Tamotsu Enami which has quite a few pictures of Old Bermuda from the 1930s. Landscapes, seascapes, lots of shots of the old railway and much more. These images in this set were shot ca.1932-36 by an unknown cameraman….or cameramen.
These are just a few examples of the photos on display over at his Flickr page. Please go over to his page and see the rest of the photographs and the many in depth comments about the photographic processes used and about the exact location of the all the old photos! It is very interesting!
