These beautiful Thames Conservancy registration plates were issued yearly to vessels used on the Thames between C1888 and 1948 when the enamel plates were modernised. During the Victorian and Edwardian eras, there were a number of boat stations where people could hire boats to enjoy the more pleasant stretches of the River Thames on their travels into central London.

It has been said that at the end of each year when these enamel licenses expired, they were skimmed into the water before the new one was attached to the boat!
