An Inland Voyage - from the Robert Longden Archive

I'm not sure if I've commended this exhbition - of life on the Oxford and
Coventry Canals, before. It is a tad off-topic, but these photographs of the
1940s and 1950s, of a way of live already in decline, and soon to end, and the
picturing of people and the way of life echoes, to me at least, Winston Link's
own philosophy.

I only managed to get to see this exhibition, in Coventry's Herbert Art Gallery
and Museum, yesterday, and it closes today. I hope that there's a chance that
it will tour - perhaps even to the United States (it would seem to be a great
match for the OWL Museum in Roanoke).

Showing during the exhibition was this video - though it doesn't seem to be
available commercially - which is wonderfully evocative of the era.
