Teddington Lock 1969


Teddington Lock 1969, originally uploaded by Pig Sty Ave.

My aunt and uncle lived on a boat "the Lindsey" on the Thames at Teddington in the 1960s. We used to visit them and stayed in another boat alongside, "The Ballerina". It was great fun. In those days, Eel Pie Island just downriver was an important alternative music venue, and you'd have hippies rowing around, the smell of dope across the water...

That's my sister Sharon and me, with Dad rowing. And I'm certain that's just a cigarette.
