Fair use rationale for Image:Lighter under tower bridge c1928.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Lighter under tower bridge c1928.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

historical trade?[edit]

The article implies that it's not a contemporary trade (or usage) but I see that Mark Hunter (rower) is a qualified lighterman (BBC). Hakluyt bean (talk) 01:39, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Watermen's and Lightermen's Company founded in 1700, not 1555[edit]

The Company of Watermen and Lightermen was created by an of Parliament in 1700, when the lightermen joined the (already-existing) Company of Watermen (itself founded by an Act of Parliament in 1555).

I've accordingly corrected it.
