Albert and the Iron Trunk

I have just reached a significant birthday -  the one where I get my State Pension. Wishing to mark it with a memorable present Maggie arranged for a local artist Peter Bowtell, whom we have known for many years, to produce a watercolour of Albert crossing the Iron Trunk Aqueduct at Cosgrove.

We had seen similar watercolours by Peter of the Iron Trunk but wanted one of Albert. In order to feature the boat more, Peter selected a slightly tighter view than his other images.

I am really delighted with it and will treasure it!

PS The aqueduct will reach its 201st birthday later in the month and is shortly to be repainted.
