EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases "The Old Running Shed, Swindon Works" circa 1910. The image captures a significant piece of history before its unfortunate demolition in the 1930s to make way for the B Shed extension. This shed, built in 1941, holds immense historical value as it formed an integral part of Brunel's original Works at Swindon. The photograph transports us back in time to an era when steam locomotives were the lifeblood of transportation and innovation. The imposing structure stands tall against the backdrop of a bustling railway yard, with billowing smoke adding an air of nostalgia and excitement. One cannot help but marvel at the craftsmanship that went into constructing this magnificent shed. Its architectural details speak volumes about the dedication and skill of those who designed and built it over a century ago. It served as a hub for maintenance and repair work on locomotives that powered Britain's industrial revolution. As we gaze upon this remarkable print, we are reminded of how far we have come since then, yet also humbled by our reliance on these engineering marvels that shaped our past. Thanks to institutions like STEAM Museum of the GWR, we can preserve these glimpses into history for future generations to appreciate and learn from
