Re: My thing with slots

PM, what date would that have been, please? I think my Dad had left there by 1975-6.

Re: My thing with slots

The Jenny Wren used to do trips along the canal, I remember going on her when I was a kid.
I know it still runs today. There is a floating Chinese restaurant between Camden Lock and Little Venice.
