The Second Ferry at Cookham Lock.

The Second Ferry at Cookham Lock.
I have mentioned the Three Ferries in this blog before. Here is another photograph attributed to William Bailey. Summer Sunday afternoons were most popular with the village residents to walk the  three ferries and stop off at the lock keepers garden for a cream tea provided by the lock keepers wife. If my memory is correct a tea for three was 1/6 (one shilling and six pence.) That was around 1936-37.
