Has anyone got a photo of the old boatyards that were used by Powles on the main river, and also of Moores, when they were at Marsh Road ?

I know Buffalo Bill posted one of Powles back in 2011, but it is no longer viewable on the thread..

This picture brings back memories. The boat which is being washed in the foreground is White Emblem 4 which I hired from Ernest Collins when  new in 1968 for 4 weeks a year, 2 weeks early season & 2 weeks late season for several years. I then hired hired Royal Emblem and then Astral Emblem, staying with Ernest Collins until they were taken over by Jack Powels in the late 70s early 80s. Until taken over, Ernest Collins occupied the yard that you can see on the other side of the river and Jack Powels occupied what is now brinkcraft. The photo must have been take after the takeover because as you can see from Powels yard in the photo it is flying both the Powels and Collins flags. I believe that when Collins sold out to Powels they also sold the land where the Penninsular Cottages were built, and rented out as holiday homes by Moores of Wroxham.
