Not Brentford

Murrell narrowboats, Brentford Dock, 1973 & 1974

Peter Young took these photos at Brentford Dock, the first on 2nd May 1973 and the second on the 3rd March 1974, part of a collection of photos which show river traffic and people who worked on the waterways. If you are not familiar with the area a map from 1912 may help.

The narrowboats have signage 'T & D Murrell & Sons, Canal Carriers, Uxbridge'. The first shows Towcester, registered at Isleworth, no. 144; the second shows Towcester and Bingley.
If you can provide names of either of the two men please get in touch.

A Tam and Di Murrell of Twickenham may be the same T & D Murrell, see their Barge Handling website.
