Alcor Narrowboat at Brentford Lock and Dock, 1974Peter Young took these photos at Brentford Lock on February 23rd 1974 - a sunny day but with dark clouds.
They show the traditionally-painted narrowboat Alcor at the lock and passing through - the second photo shows a glimpse of the lock keeper as well as the boat owner.
The third photo shows the Alcor at Brentford Dock between a Thames & General Lighterage barge and another barge in the foreground. Also a good view of the crane.
Does anyone remember either of these men?
Hilary Pereira supplied an answer in 2023:
As at 2023, the Historic Narrow Boat Club has pictures and a history of Alcor.
