Originally produced as a filmstrip for South Hertfordshire schools around the same time as the film "Painted Boats" was made

Common Ground filmstrips were extensively used in schools, this one was made in conjunction with the Grand Union Canal Co and the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company Ltd.

"Royalty class" motor boat "William" is paired with "Town class" butty "Roade". The family are Mr & Mrs Powell with their two children Louis and Sylvia. They load steel billets and head for Birmingham.

42 images follow the journey and these are accompanied by some 40 pages of text which explain the journey, the lifestyle and the background to the waterways.

A unique insight into educational use of canal transport in the late 1940's.

Together on the CD we have added some pictures of the main locations used in the film "Painted Boats".

The CD can be viewed on your PC or laptop from which you can print all the pages and pictures. You can also view the images on a dvd player if you wish.
