My favourite picture view of the river Nidd in Knaresborough. My grandparents lived here, and it was my second home since I kept my ponies at Manse Farm in Knaresborough from 1975-1979 when we emigrated.
Shad Thames, c1910. Much of the river Thames was lined by vertiginous warehouses creating dark canyons separated by slit-like alleys leading to ancient stairs, jetties and wharves. At Shad Thames a myriad of iron bridges spanned the street to allow goods to be moved across the walkways to warehouses inland.
