"Detailed plan with detailed indications of elevation of the surface of the water and the bed of the river. A profile of the River Thames from Boulter's Lock to Mortlake. Boulters Lock, located alongside the bustling river was formerly called Ray Mill Lock, after the adjacent mill owned by the Ray family who produced flour. The first documented records show that there was a flash lock here in the 17th century. It built up a head of water to power the mills and a section of the weir would be moved to allow boats and barges through. A wooden pound lock was built here in 1770. In times past, about 70,000 tons of cargo would pass through the lock every year.
