The "Cliveden" was used in Salters passenger boat fleet up until the 1988 season.
She is a tunnel stern vessel 30.2 mtrs long, beam 5.06 mtrs and she draws 1.21 mtrs. Her gross tonnage is 78.84, her registered tonnage is 63.61.
She was built in 1931 by Salter Bros Ltd.
She no longer has an engine or any machinery.
The construction of her hull is metal and the superstructure is timber.
She has a forward deck with a large aft cabin which starts at the midship position. She has an open top deck.
The vessel is in need of renovation, but the accommodation available may be suitable as a houseboat.

This is quite a common view - although different versions do have their own points of interest, but what is the steamer? I think the curved handrail running from the upper to lower deck might help with identification, but I haven't found one like it.
The postcard is a 'Kromo series' no. 21999, published by 'B & D London E.C.' (Blum & Degen), and postmarked 31st December 1910.
Here's a close-up of the steamer.

Everyone's relaxed and enjoying themselves, I can see why this is 'perhaps' your favourite photo of Windsor Castle', benm.Is the passenger, sitting in front of the lifebelt, opening a toffee perhaps, and is the chap in the white suit trying to attract the attention of the lady in front of him? Looking at the men in particular, they are mostly wearing suits with ties, making me wonder if this could be an 'office party trip'? Windsor Castle looks just about ready to come out of the lock, or maybe she's just 'gone in'.......a charming picture whichever way you look at it. Thank goodness for photos like this.
