The Black Country Living Museum.

A familiar scene for Peaky Blinders’ fans.

An unusual view of a familiar location. Being moored on the canal outside, we can see this angle of an area made famous by the Peaky Blinders TV series. The dockside on the right is where a number of the outside meetings are filmed. Here with see the setting in its more normal mode, with former working boats moored up in the old arm of what is now the Black Country Living Museum.The boats breasted up on the left in the distance are arguably two of the most famous historic working boats. Kildare, on the outside is the butty (unpowered boat). On the inside is its more famous partner, President. Built in 1909 for the famous company Fellows, Morton & Clayton, President was a steam powered motor boat until 1925, when steam gave way to a Bolinder single cylinder diesel. It was restored from a derelict wreck in 1973, and refitted with a steam engine. It was subsequently purchased by the Black Country Living Museum. The photograph has had some Photoshop treatment to create an almost painted effect.
