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). Many of these photos have taken a lot of effort to find - I'm sorry to have to say that excessive re pinners will be blocked.
