Alcor Narrowboat at Brentford Lock and Dock, 1974

Brentford Lock NarrowboatPeter Young took these photos at Brentford Lock on February 23rd 197 - a sunny day but with dark clouds.

They show the traditionally-painted narrowboat Alcor at the lock and passing through - the second photo shows a glimpse of the lock keeper as well as the boat owner.

The third photo shows the Alcor at Brentford Dock between a Thames & General Lighterage barge and another barge in the foreground. Also a good view of the crane.

Does anyone remember either of these men?

If you Google 'Alcor canal' you will find a history of this narrowboat, which apparently is still in use as at 2018.
