Roses and castles illustration by R. Hall, from The Story Of Our Canals, Ladybird, 1975.

The hallmarks of this traditional style are swags of stylized flowers and castle scenes, executed in brilliant colours on the outside of the boats as well as the interiors and utensils. #narrowboat #holidays #vacation #boat #trips #canal #trip #bridges #aqueducts #roses #castles
