Fantastic pictures algy. :D

 

I liked the Manor lock picture as I was there today and I was trying to picture in my head boats passing through there. Now I can. :)

 

I think I was born a generation too late as when I look at old pictures of Warrington I think it looked better then than it does today. Oh well. Try not to live in the past as they say :?

No need to try and live in the past, just try and appreciate how the people of those times lived, we think we are having a hard time the norm' for those folk were high mortality rates, lucky if you reached fifty years of age, very little full time employment, poor rates of pay, bad sanitation, no flush toilets, no clean running tap water, no paid holidays, no health care, etc, etc,

the photographs depict a romantic view of the time but not a factual representation of the way the populace were living.
