This is ancient history. Well, maybe not quite, but I think this must be early 1960's, which makes it around 50 years ago. I was given a Leica copy (second hand of course) by my parents as a birthday present. Before that all I had was a plastic Box Brownie, which would not have had a good enough lens to get this.
This shot would be impossible now. These days the left hand bank of the river is full of mature trees. It's amazing how quickly things change. It's interesting to compare it to the last image, which itself is not recent.
