Photographer's Note

This boat,moored on the Leeds And Liverpool Canal at Skipton, displays a simplified, humorous version of the painted decoration which was part of the strong traditions on the 'narrowboats'. The boats transported goods along the inland waterways and were also homes to the families that crewed them. For my Greek and Turkish friends I would like to add that these are the boats most familiar to me when I am at home in the UK - but they are now used mainly for enjoyment.
I hope to post more examples of narrowboat decoration in future.
