Mrs Gribbis (boatman's wife) and her daughter Valerie enjoy a lunchtime cup of tea in the sunshine as they steer the 'butty', being towed by Mr Gribbis' canal boat, somewhere along the Grand Union Canal. Canal boats are mostly operated in pairs, the leader being run by an engine with the second, the 'butty', towed behind.
