My Grandmother Owned The Brown Horse Inn Until 1922 - a Memory of Winster.
My grandparents Mr. & Mrs. Cecil Carl Stronnel owned the Brown Horse Inn until 1922 when my grandmother and my mother emigrated to Canada. My grandmother had divorced prior to their departure. The present photo is very
similar to the one that hung on the wall of my grandmother's home, I believe the one she had had a horse in the sign which as I recall hung out front. My grandmother was a school teacher in the area, her maiden name was Margaret Atkinson. Her father Enoch Atkinson captained the ferry on Lake Windermere. While a member of the RCAF in 1957 I attempted to visit the Inn but it was closed while the owners were on holiday. Unfortunately I never did get back to see it but still hope one day soon, I hope.
