Barrow-In-Furness / Walney Ferry

This black and white card has been tinted by hand.

Walney Island has been connected by a bridge (Jubilee Bridge) to the Mainland since 1908 – that is one year after this card was sent in 1907. The card describes the island as agricultural “possessing a very rich soil which produces good crops of grain… part of the island has been acquired by the Barrow Corporation and made into a recreation park for the inhabitants…”

Barrow is an area of ship building. My father in law worked at the ship-yard, and my brother in law still works there – mostly on submarines.
