Not Brentford

Brentford Lock Keepers

Peter Young took this photo at Brentford Lock on 2nd May 1973, part of a collection of photos from 1973 and 1974 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.

Peter adds: the Thames barges would arrive at Lock 100 (Brentford Lock) and then tie up by one of the wharves within the dock. The lockkeepers were very busy and someone will probably be able to recognise them.
If you can provide any names please get in touch.
