This large and unique Collection of photographs and negatives, together with extensive logbooks of railway journeys, named after Walter Harold Casmir Kelland C.B.E., was bequeathed to the Bournemouth Railway Club after his death in 1966.

Some of the negatives are on glass, and others on early photographic film, which have suffered from deterioration due to chemical and atmospheric changes. However, the Club, and the Collection Curator, Mike Smith, feel that it is important to retain the whole of this irreplaceable wealth of railway history, and restoration work is being carried out to improve print quality, whenever finances permit.

The Collection, the majority of which is a world wide record of Locomotives, has been comprehensively listed using new technology, which has enabled the Catalogue to be updated with the addition of many new photographs, Print Details can be found in the four books of the Catalogue, see Photographic Catalogues.
