The Trevor Whelan Collection
Isle of Wight
transport miscellany 2

A few more examples of transport images shot on the Isle of Wight, this time in colour and using a variety of cameras and formats. For example, the first image was shot in the summer of 1970 with my old Instamatic and is included for its historic interest rather than technical quality. In contrast, the image of the Bristol RE on the right of that row was shot with an elderly Ensign 820 Selfix, while later medium format images utilised Hasselblad equipment. Other colour images on this page come from a mixture of 35mm SLRs and digital cameras.
