Around 2005 BC

Published: Thursday, 28 May 2020

So CaRT wants good pictures/memories of the waterways, asks Ralph Freeman.

RalphFreemeanI assume then they mean from the British Waterways days around 2005 BC when I think the waterways were at their best?  (BC of course stands for Before CaRT).

Obituary for canals?

I wonder what these photos are for? Is CaRT compiling an obituary for the canals?  A sort of 'Look at the way we used to cruise back in the good ol' days'?

Anyway here is my photo—taken back in the days when dredging was a common sight, even during the summer months.
