A lovely Victorian scene of this well known Windsor landmark before it was rebuilt.
Boveney Lock is on the River Thames situated on the Buckinghamshire bank opposite the Windsor Racecourse and close to Eton Wick. Boveney is a village a little way upstream on the same side. The lock was first built in 1838 by the Thames Navagation Commission. The lock was rebuilt in 1898 closer to the Buckinghamshire bank and a set of boat rollers were installed on the old site.
An utterly charming painting with good strong colours. Titled and signed with initials, dated 1892. Signed in pencil loer left, presently unframed.
