The Old and the New....

The old narrow boat is dwarfed by the London skyline.

My great-grandfather grew up on a narrow boat going back and forth along the Grand Union canal between London and Birmingham in the mid 1800s. No education and a hard working life....

Wonder what he would have thought of the "financial services" industry which is all-dominant now in the City?

Have a good weekend all. Away for a week now for my annual Norther Road Trip :-)

Annbramwell The old is somewhat overwhelmed by the new, even the tower of London looks insignificant in comparison! It is a very impressive shot though!

DancingDolphin Each generation thinks they are seeing what is "new" and yet "new" keeps moving on! I bet your GGF looked at London and thought something similar to what you do... and THAT'S pretty cool.

Enjoy your trip... hope you find the bears and they don't find you. :)
