|A homemade model of a working narrow boat carrying coal for ACME coal merchants, established 1897. This is a family narrow boat. Competition with the railway companies in the 1840s and 1850s forced working boatman to leave their homes on the land and take their whole families to live in the tiny boat cabins. The standard living cabin was about 10 feet long and 6 feet 6 inches wide, entered through double doors or hatches from a small stern deck. The boat was steered from a footboard or step in the doorway. At night the tiller would be reversed, the double doors closed and a slide drawn over the top or well of the cockpit. All this is accurately portrayed in this boat. English, circa 1920.|
