THE ROMANCE OF THE RAILWAY, GREAT NORTHERN by Ian Scott Massie
I have written a book to accompany the exhibition which includes many of the paintings and prints alongside the stories which weave alongside the tracks.
"Our journey begins at Kings Cross - a place with deep roots. The station was built in 1851 on the bank of a vanished river. About 12,000 years ago a glacier melted leaving behind a shallow valley. The valley became the bed of the The River Fleet, now channelled underground, but its course is reflected in the buildings around Kings Cross."
