Brent Lee (two photos)

Peter Young took these photos of the Brent Lee, the first near Brentford Lock, the second as she passed under Brent Bridge 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 the map may help; it also shows the Brent Lee at Brentford Lock on the same day. Brent Lee was a Thames & General Lighterage tug, built in 1957 by local firm E.C. Jones - read more about E.C. Jones company history - and as at 2009 was still operating under the name Ver - an external website has a modern photo and more details.
