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).

    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.
