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.
