More from the C&RT archives

Two photographs of the same “Tree class” work boat on the Shroppie near Audlem, the first from Herbert Dunkley’s slides and the second by Arthur Watts in 1957. Frustratingly, the name of the boat is not visible at this resolution!

These ones are of Fir, when it was worked by Charles Ballinger, having been hired from Severn and Canal then bought in 1950. Charles worked Beech and Fir (renamed Olive and Bridget respectively) until he died in 1962.

  1. It’s Arthur Watts, not Andrew Watts. Andrew didn’t start taking photos till some time after this!
