Christy Mahon in pensive pose
Our regular roving railway reporter Flying Snail ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/flyingsnail/ ) asked for some help, and I was happy to oblige. He's nearing the end of his college work (a photographic project on the former railways in Co. Meath) and asked to see photos of Christy Mahon, the former signalman at Kilmessan Station. ..Date: Friday, 25 November 1960..NLI Ref.: ODEA 22/96 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000305246 )
Images from our photo collections that show those magnificent men (and women) in their flying, choo choo-ing, and driving machines... Oh, and we've cheated, we're adding boats and ships, jaunting cars and carriages, trams too and bicycles - we're completely shameless. So, basically any form of transport - air, sea, land - with the exception of two human feet...
