CANALS, BARGES AND PEOPLE

John O'Connor    Book Number: 85713    Product format: Paperback

Glorious facsimile reprint of the 1950s classic book on the delights of Britain's rivers and waterways. The eminent wood engraver John O'Connor has produced a lyrical prose, and illustrates with over 30 sensitive engravings, some hand coloured in yellows and reds which capture the work of the smithy, the young girl with a ribbon in her hair sitting dreamily on board a canal boat, a beautifully decorated canal boat, woodland scenery, riverbanks and bridges, a decorative jug, cooking, a horse pulling a barge through a tunnel, approaching a gate at dusk, the steeple of the church in the background - you get the picture. Chapters include The New Monkey Boat, The Family in the Neston, Locks and Meals, Sheila Goes to School and the Roman Canal. We enjoy the natural beauty and charm of slow water, friendly bridges, coloured boats and the small scurrying animals of the water bank. We pass under brick bridges on the Grantham Canal and relax, just like the cats and ducks and birds in many of these gorgeous depictions. 96 page softback.
