photoblog image Black Country Museum Reflections 5/5

Black Country Museum Reflections 5/5

Back on the 4th.September you will recall a group of us met up at the Black Country Museum in the heart of the English Midlands at Dudley where we had a great time together.

 

The village area is built around the Canal Basin and this is a short series of images taken of the reflections looking into the water, which itself is very clear, probably because of the lack of much movement of those narrow boats still in working order.


This final image in the series just happens to fall on Boat Friday.  For railway enthusiasts an extra, last minute posting is here tomorrow.

Superb
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
What are these supposed to be for? Did they carry cargo?
Brian Walbey: They carried all sorts Elizabeth but mostly coal and raw materials for factories in the early days of the Industrial Revolution, the coming of the railways in the early 1800's took a lot of this traffic away, but even now, some people make a living using narrow boats to haul stuff.

These are proper working boats
Brian Walbey: They are, or were, indeed Chris. I think this shot will go in a club competition at some time.

Fits right into boat friday as well
Brian Walbey: yes indeed it does Chantal.
Working boats put out to pasture in their twilight years
Brian Walbey: At least they are still there to be seen though Richard, and long may they be so.

Little clue that these are museum items, Brian. If it was a b&w image, it could be taken in the heyday of canals. Colour is much nice, though smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.
Looks as if they've done some serious work in the past, Brian. Really like how you've composed this one.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Beverly.
