The narrowboat EMPRESS was built in 1887 by Fellows, Morton & Clayton Ltd. at Birmingham. Between 1887 and 1919, she operated as a steam fly boat. She was converted to a semi-diesel engine in 1919 and, until 1952, was worked by Ernest Thomas of Walsall as a tug. In the late 1960s, she entered private ownership.
