Tuesday's Old Bull..

Last night quick dig through Ian Locksmith's print collection revealed another photo of Brewhouse Quay on the edge of Bath.

Judging by the angle, this one appears to have been taken from another canal boat and from the time around 1952 when the brewery had a major rebuild to get rid of the wartime damage - the barge to the left being used as a water-born skip.

Note the wharf side crane, I bet nobody at the time had the faintest idea that there would be a future plastic kit based on it!

Our intrepid photographer also took a rather nice Kodachrome slide at the same time, you can see it here.
