John Lewington’s Barge Match picture in The Times
I’m beginning to think that someone on The Times’s editorial or photographic staff is a Thames barge fan.
Again today there is a superb barge picture, this time by John Lewington of barges in “a Thames barge race in Southend”. Difficult to work out from the description whether it is a Thames Match at Southend, or a Southend Match.
The photograph has been entered for the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society’s photography competition, now in its 179th year.
