    Hi Arthur, I grew up in Runcorn in the 1950s. One of our delights was to run from the playground of the Parish Church School at lunchtime down to the Ship Canal (Ferry Hut) to see a 'Big Fellah' being slowly eased around the sharp bend at the Runcorn Gap. I remember Likes Lines vessels, but none of the other common lines that used the canal - can you help? I'm preparing a photobook of life in Runcorn in the 1940s - 60s (own use only). Cheers Rob
