This is a classic shot of the boat horse 'Tina' working the "John Gray" through Bridge 1. This was taken in the mid 1980s.
A routine weekend excursion of the "John Gray", seen here approaching Bridge 1 from Leawood. The horse is 'Tina', so the photo was taken c.1987. Note the well kept towpath and cut reeds, as well as the wide channel following re-dredging with the floating machine.
