What was I photographing on this day in previous years?

10 years ago it was The Canalhouse, a pub occupying the lower floors of the former canal museum in Nottingham. I believe it’s the only canalside pub in Britain where the canal itself (The Beeston Canal) actually enters the building!

Fellows Morton & Clayton Ltd was, for much of the early 20th century, the largest and best-known canal transportation company in England. They went into liquidation in 1948 but the name lives on in a smaller pub next door to The Canalhouse.
