Nice picture from gentler times. The town of Reading has changed out of all recognition since that picture was taken, but the riverbank has stayed the same.

I have just repeated your journey from Scours Lane to the Roebuck. The Roebuck is now closed but the footbridge across the railway fom the river up to the Roebuck is still there.
