 From Lower Thames file. Unidentified barge passing Benfleet.

Ron Green has a similar postcard and writes it is an ex Smeed Dean barge, probably BUCKLAND. Most likely loaded with Thames Ballast from the dredger, which she will carry on a little further around the bend to a wharf in part of the creek which is now filled in.
