  1. We need no back up we're the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company Ltd..........................................................................and Happy New Year to you too..........................
  2. Blue @ top Red @ bottom here but I've seen other variations
  3. Wonderful construction but not my cup of tea.......................I own a Woolwich not a Josher...................we were very up to date with electric lighting.............................
  4. The picture is dated as 1940's and I'm sure the colour scheme for the cans is wartime red blue and cream and this is as stated Bulls Bridge paint shop in it's Grand Union days............. Interestingly another well known manufacturers of cans, Bococks were better known for their range of brass masthead lamps and other sea going equipment............................
  5. Look @ all those cans..............all appear to be wire handled..................long before the Joseph Ash days of BW...........
  6. That is the Lancaster Northern reaches with Farleton Knott in the background......................................
  7. I haven't seen more than two pics. of 'white' tripping boats..Rambler and Sprite........so further investigation is needed... If the archives ever open again I'm intending spending a day there............looking for 'white' boats will now be one of the tasks.............................
  8. Bit of a mystery that. I think it may well be Water Sprite/Pisces and a converted butty......................Rambler and Sprite are the only 'tripping' boats to carry a white livery AFAIK.......................................
  9. Rambler...............................Black and white image............. Top bends now................properly........................reinstated..................................
  10. Thanks Ray. My interest actually lies with the two boats breasted up in the distance, one of which is Star, the other unknown.............
  11. Is this a BW image? I have a BW postcard with the two boats in the background, one of which is Star.................................
  12. And you would put that, thing in your cabin??.........................Really??
  13. Shocked, apalled but not surprised, nothing it seems is safe from the developers these days............................... The plans and reports are extensive it will take some time to get through all of them. The developers must have spent a fortune in having these prepared...............small beer I suppose in the overall development..............but the future restoration plans whilst not omitted are clearly being brushed aside by them. Having been involved in the restoration of Lock 1 and the basin along with many other volunteers I think I can speak for them all when I say I didn't give my time up for something like this to come along 15 years later.................
