Author Biography - Rex Conway
Rex Conway started work in 1952 with the Bristol Evening Post as a trainee photographer. After three years as an RAF photographer with Coastal Command he rejoined the Post, remaining with the paper until the 1980s when he became a freelance photographer. From the 50s to the 80s Rex took approximately 25,000 railway photographs; since then he has added other collections - so his archive now numbers over 65,000 images, with the earliest dating from 1900. Rex published three railway books in the mid-1970s, but a busy freelance career interfered with his publishing plans. Now he has retired he intends to devote much more time to books that draw on his archive.
