Anybody out there who remember the narrow boat Joseph Chamberlain belonging to the Bham Ass. of Youth Clubs who used to put on cruises from Gs st. to Sharpness nr. Bristol inthe 1950 I had my first real holiday away from home in 1953 aged 16 and have never forgot it. Lost all my pics. years ago unfortunately. Never been able to find anyone else who has ever heard of it

Hi Buffalo Dave
 
Welcome to our forum, I'm sorry I have no memory of what you mention, but some of the guys & gals on here who are a little older than me might have. Good luck to you.

I took these from the bridge on Granville Street on the way into work, one view is towards the Mailbox, the other away from it.  You can certainly see when the 'city centre' starts!
