Tony has been in touch again.

 

The narrowboat owner was based in Birmingham, was well educated and had a "cast in his eye".

It would be of interest to discover more about GLENDOWER. This was an early trip out by a horse drawn craft for pleasure.

 

Some of the locations could provide a useful information if each image was presented singly, for example:

Tony tells me he thinks he has some old 8mm movie reel taken on that holiday. He is going to look for it,

 

Will keep you posted if more info comes along.

Cheers. Mick

That is useful.

 

Then there is the image showing the GLENDOWER passing what may be a BTW  boat and various wharfside buildings

That's fascinating - our mooring is just off the bottom right of the photo. Much is still recognisable (bridge, buildings) but the wharf appears to have an awning . It's also not clear, because of the vegetation, whether there was a winding hole immediately South of the wharf, as there is now.
