One of the joys of my current project of digitizing my collection of 35mm transparencies has been the uncovering of long-forgotten shots of working barges from the 1970s and 80s. Here are a few.
|Cawoods Hargreaves push-tug and coal pans on the Aire and Calder at, I think, Knottingley in 1985|
|Another Knottingley scene on the same day in 1985|
|Boats waiting to unload coal at Doncaster Power Station in November 1978|
|Barges waiting to unload rolls of newsprint at the riverside presses of the York Evening Press|
