Historic London Canal & Waterway images

A collation of old photographs showing scenes around London's lost and forgotten canals and waterways. The ongoing project criteria is to only use images already on the internet - and to draw them together in one place for further study, and to try and piece together geographically (something I haven't been able to find elsewhere).

Captioned: "Canal #lock #cottage cowley print. A reproduction from a good quality photo postcard of Cowley lock, on the Grand Union canal in #Middlesex UK in the early 20th century possibly around 1920. The lock #keeper and his wife are standing by the gate of the cottage with a terrier sitting on the wall next to them. the top of the lock gates are in the foreground. The date of 1893 is legible on the lock wall". #cowley #canal #grand #union #barge #narrowboat #toll #wideboat #london

    My friends moved off of the canal into this cottage (the one on the left) last year. For Christmas I got them this image, blown up and framed.
