As part of an ongoing project of ‘mapping the river Thames’ one can find common places, such as this conveyor belt that delivers sand into the hull of ships and barges. The Thames is still a working river.

The MV Royal Iris was a twin screw, diesel-electric, former Mersey Ferry. The vessel was built by William Denny & Brothers  and launched in December 1950.

It is now in its final resting place, possibly its last.

I am certain there are many stories to be told by and about this rusting old ferry.

A travelling gentleman

I have been watching  an interesting character here in central London, Piccadilly, for weeks but never had a chance to talk to him.
I asked him if I could take his picture.
He was quite agreeable.
One of the many interesting people in London.
