A tinted postcard view of upstream
of Romney Lock from the early 1900s although the view may date
from the 1880s.
A similar view from a stereoview
dating from around 1900 or before
Another view looking towards the
lock, this time with all the cottage in view and a rather ramshackle
outhouse or barn on the upstream side. By the lock is a steam
tug, see detail below. The postcard dates from the very
early 1900s but the view could date as far back as the 1870s.
Detail from the above PC of the
steam tug by Romney Lock

A delightful launch, possibly electric,
leaves the lock and sets off down stream.
