Lettered, lower center: "THE WATERWAY'S traditional gaudy-gay decoration is fast vanishing, but you can still escape to | this quiet, withdrawn world - to the Grand Union Canal, idyllic and sylvan in Casslobury Park, | Watford; to the River Lee, slow-moving under the broad Hertfordshire sky, trimly business-like at | Broxbourne, Sawbridgeworth, Hoddesdon. But for a duck's eye view go to Little Venice, Paddington, | and then by narrow boat to the Zoo, or (on Saturday evenings only) out to Greenford. | Underground to Warwick Avenue for Little Venice"
