The above photos have been assembled from various sources, including those freely found on the internet. My thanks go to the many photographers alive and dead who have contributed to this collection and in so doing, are keeping the memory of these lost canals alive. These images are reproduced for ease of research are are not necessarily the property of this blog, and as such should not be used for commercial gain without the explicit permission of the owner (whoever that may be).

Hi Andy, excellent site and pictures. Just to say that the middle picture is actually of Callohan's scrap yard, Dudley Road, Tipton just down from the black country museum.
