    Default Waterway People

    In the mid -1800's English Waterways and Canals started to fall into disuse , as the steam-train took over. Many families started living on the abandoned boats and barges on these canals.
    This photo taken around 1910 shows a tipical waterways family.
    The owner of this photo is unknown, apart from it was taken in England, maybe north England?

    Some very atractive young ladies there Reg. brings back memories.

    Cant afford a boat on the canals now, a cheapo would cost around ?80,000 or $A150,000.

    There are a lot cheaper than that going. ?25-30K.

    Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones was from a canal family. He was the first not to be born on water.
    The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
