Photographs from the Archives

In the archives at work we found boxes of papes and photographs belonging to the late Dr Dennis Chapman. There are hundreds of photographs of Scandinavian fishing boats and various ports and harbour around the world. Some of the prints are from photos taken a 100 years ago. Among the photos there are some of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal taken in the 1960's. The photos are of the canal in Shipley, including some of a lock on the Bradford Canal. The photos include a couple of ex-working boats.
There are also some of the Chester Canal and Kennet and Avon Canal in the 1950's.
I hope to scan these and put them on the new towpathtreks site at some point.
