Black Boy, 2007 - Following-up on NB Lion

Because we were passing through Knowle on a wet Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend we decided to follow-up on Ken Tremain's 1960s photographs of NB Lion moored up outside the Black Boy. Several features of the pub look similar but the building has been much altered and the gardens are very different. Still what do you expect after 40 years!

The moorings opposite, for members of the Black Boy Cruising Club look very much improved. Unfortunately we couldn't gain access to off-side so we couldn't re-create Ken's camera angles; however it was interesting to re-discover his old haunts.
