    Dont know if you know of this >>>>>

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

    Good luck on your mission.

    In the days when we had nothing we had fun.
    If tomorrow starts without me, remember I was here.

    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
