For anyone interested in their canal and river boat ancestors

I'd like to say "Thank you" for the use of this photograph (and one on the first page) to Alan George, and the Old Merthyr Tydfil site.  There are some wonderful old canal pictures on there - well worth a look, even for those whose ancestors are not from that area.  The site is www.oldmerthyrtydfil.com
