Aerial photos of Thames sailing barges

This gallery of aerial photos of Thames sailing barges from the 1940s is an interesting document – not least because it shows clearly how far barges in those days would travel, as can be seen from the shot of Kingston upon Hull and the photo of three barges moored near Cowes.

By the way, the sparkling barge shot is of Repertor.

My thanks to the Thames Sailing Barge Trust for spotting this one.
