Waiting for the bridge
Waiting for the bridge
Two boats returning from a rally at Auchinstarry near Kilsyth, a short private narrowboat called "Nola's Ark" after its owner and a restored 1936 gentleman's launch named "Kelvin" after its builders, wait on the Forth & Clyde Canal at the pontoon at Bonnybridge for the lifting bridge in the background to be raised by British Waterways personnel. One should add that they do so by pressing buttons and setting hydraulic pumps in action; they do not get underneath and lift it bodily on their shoulders like Atlas supporting the world.
