Kew

Motor conversion from butty in the 1970s.  In the same ownership for many years.

In recent photos, the distinctive blue, interlocking, fibreglass cargo coverings can still be seen towards the front of the hold.  These were an innovation in the 1960s and enabled one person to cover the hold very quickly - certainly in less time than the usual 2 hours using traditional cloths.
