Alfred Akerman Proprietor Ferry Inn Rosneath - a Memory of Rosneath.
100 years ago roughly my maternal great grandfather Alfred Akerman owned and managed Ferry Inn, Rosneath. He was owner still in 1930. I have a Ferry Inn brochure (undated)..probably about 1920 because it says guests can be met by limousine or by horse-drawn carriage in Glasgow. Alfred's great grandfather was the same Richard Akerman a character in Charles Dicken's "Barnaby Rudge". I visited Ferry Inn in September 1956 but did not go in.
