A Head of Steam

A retired engineer from BP Chemicals Saltend, works on a scale model of a steam engine he built himself. The Engine was called ‘Lady Barbara after his wife. Picture was taken in 1983. I had to photograph this gentleman for the BP Chemical magazine as he had recently retired, he had built a fantastic workshop in his garden and was obviously a talented engineer!
