The boats in the picture were too large for the locks and just worked on the Wolverhampton level of the Birmingham Canal Navigations. This was a common sight in the 1970's and 80's as the BCN's traffic transferred to the roads. It was unusual to see holiday boaters then as well.
Biddings Lane bridge is visible in the background.
