Thames sailing pics 1890-1930 or thereabouts

Post by jonathanR » Thu Sep 27, 2012 10:10 am

I was sent this and thought some of you might be interested to take a look especially if you have an old i14

They are wonderful. Somehow river sailing looks much better in black and white!

Fascinating: but I'm almost certain that a number are on the Norfolk Broads rather than the Thames.

They all look like the Thames to me......but certainly one or two looked like Upper Thames, with Winter Hill in the background.

I think Neil will want to look at Image 78......that is almost close enough to Zenith to get a bit excited.

more than a bit excited. That's a B Class. I need a higher res version of that image.

I thought photo 12 looks a lot like one of the "White Boats"

Hi
Talking about White Boats on holiday this year saw the Brown boats racing on the Broards. The majority are now white as all the new boats are GRP.
Cheers Al

Lovely!
Image 28 shows nat 12 no. 500 which came to Wraysbury earlier this year. Same owner then as now!
She was in lovely condition though had dried out abit so leaked. I believe he is looking for someone to continue her care.
