- Leo No 2 approaching Tower Bridge from the upper pool with HMS Belfast in the background- 


When you travel you always take pictures of other boats and the scenary. I was fortunate on this trip that some photos were taken of Leo No 2 (courtesey of Suzanne Wilson on Aqua Vitae) and are reproduced below. Note the VHF aerial on Leo No 2 which is now a requirement on the Thames below Brenford for narrowboats of more than 60' (18.3m) in length.
