This photograph shows Charles Winlove and two sons - one is Claude not sure which - taken at the back of their workshop in Purfleet Street date unknown probably 1940s. The Custom House is in the background. The building still stands today.

Nice picture of the Purfleet showing the buildings at the entrance to Purfllt st.
The motorised barge called Nancy was registered in Lynn so will try and find
out who owned it. It looks like a family are having a picnic in the middle of
the picture.

I have been continuing with some more detective work.
Attached are two pictures taken mid to late 1970's on the bank of the Ouse.
First is a brass plate let into the ground on the quayside adjacent to the
Trininty House works on Purfleet Quay. I was prompted to look for this
picture when I saw that one of the Landlords of The Custom House Inn was a
Francis Philip Potter. The next picture on that strip of film is poking my
camera through a gap in the fence with my back to the river, so camera
pointing east. I have assumed that the pair of rails set in the ground were
for a ropewalk. Going back to the original post and the discussion between
The Custom House Inn and The London Tavern. I am still a bit confused, I was
hoping that there would be one of those finely detailed maps of this area
that pop up on quite a few posts, but not so. This posting is also not
helped by the fact that there are six pictures not available to view, saying
that Photobucket need an account updating whatever that means.
Back to the maps, there is an example of the type I mean on the 'Crisp's
Yard - Stonegate Street' post. Is a copy of the entire map of King's Lynn
available to the public please?

Nice pictures Appso and a good addition to the thread.

The library has all the maps of Lynn and you can go in and get a copy but not all in one big sheet. You need to photocopy a section at a time.
Help is nearly always at hand if they are not to busy. So short staffed now and they are told not to spend to much time with one person.

Angie (its on her name badge)is always a great help if she is on duty though.

The pictures that were missing should be back on now. Photobucket are crooks.

Looking at the second picture if that is a builders yard the rails could be for a saw bench. Just a thought.

Claude is on the left. He was mygrandfather. Made some beautiful items for his two daughters some of which I still have in my home today. Made furniture for queen Mary at Sandringham. Had a photo of the two but has been misplaced. Would love to try I it dow.

Sorry Grandfather on the right as you look at it.
