Holiday postcard - Richmond Hill viewed from Ham - # 51/10



I originally thought that the famous "squatter's river-pontoon dwelling" could be seen on the right of the river - BUT see "rob's uncle" comment below.    I must take the telephoto lens and study it closer. (I've posted the photo full-size, so you can enlarge it with a couple of clicks to view what I thought was the enlarged squatter's pontoon at your leisure).

The steamer calling in at Hammerton's Ferry - # 48/10


RuT goes back to its roots with this simple shot of the regular steamer from Kew to Hampton Court via Richmond and Kingston calling in at Hammerton's Ferry opposite Ham House.  Passengers can take the ancient ferry across the water to visit the great 17th Century house at Ham, or the more modest, Marble Hill House on the Twickenham side.
