It has taken us six days, but it’s done. finished, and not a single piece missing!
This is the one already hanging in our lounge

Now for that observation I mentioned:

Yep, both puzzles have boats belonging to Fellows, Morton and Clayton in them.
It’s not the same boat though as they have different colour signage, so I looked the company up.

Fellows, Morton and Clayton were the largest and most familiar canal transportation company in England, and were in existence from 1889 to 1947.
Currently there are only 29 of these boats still in existence, 6 of which are still in use to this day. The last remaining boats of this type are in the National Waterways Museum. There are 12 recorded sink-ages, and there are two currently in restoration. The conditions of the rest are currently unknown. (WIKI)

All we need now is a third puzzle of canal boats and I’ll have a set!
This latest one is on a board under the settee until we can get a frame for it.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    You must have a really nice pic of your old boat, so send a copy to one of those companies that mounts them and then cuts them to make a puzzle!

    One of the things I miss during the social distancing – we’d all gather at the in-laws’ house every Sunday evening and have ice cream and do a big jigsaw puzzle. I think I’ll get a puzzle out tomorrow and see if Sparky want’s to work on it with me.

    • Keep safe. We used to have family picnics years ago, meeting up somewhere and all taking something for the table. Happy days, but the family is so widely dispersed now, it would be impossible anyway. It’s only Hubby, me and the dog in our little unit.
