I’ve seen this boat on my visits to Richmond on Fridays but this is the first time I’ve had a chance to get a half decent shot of it in the last two years.
The boat is called "New Southern Belle"; it is a Mississipi-style stern wheeler bringing a flavour of the old New Orleans to the River Thames.
It is half empty in this shot but it usually full of party revellers at this time. I think it is a pub that docks periodically to pick up more punters but I am not really sure. Richmond Bridge is in the background and there is another pier shortly after the bridge where it picks up more punters as well.
