Canal Boat Family, Ellesmere Port

Mr. L. Berridge and family on Thomas Clayton oil boats at Ellesmere Port near Chester, Cheshire. In the foreground can just be seen a bicycle. These boats were probably on the run between Ellesmere Port and Thomas Clayton's oil refinery in Oldbury. (Courtesy of the T. W. King collection held at Dudley Archives & Local History Service).
