Inland Waterways 1950 (video)

An interesting film i have found on Youtube. Made in 1950 this film shows a canal boat travelling from London to Birmingham. A very different world to now, back then the canals were used to carry goods but now they carry holiday makers. Its fascinating how much has changed in the last 63 years but in rural areas how much has stayed the same. What i found most interesting was the board which was used to track boat movements and positions.
