    They hold a lot of pics and history of the old canal boat days.

    Good luck on your mission.

    Hi, John have you read, Liverpool Waif by any chance. I found it to been a very interesting true story of a young mans life on the canal barges ,the book also shows some pictures of interest. The book is written by Bob Houghton, first published in 1992-by Print Origination (NW) LTD. Formby Business Park. Formby Liverpool L37 8EG. ISBN 0 903348 33 0
