Rosneath Peninsula
This postcard was sent on April 22 1905 to Miss Edith Suckling, of Glenelg, Helensburgh, by someone called Campbell. On the front is written: “Having a fine day here, but awfully bothered with showers.” It shows the Edwin Lutyens-designed Ferry Inn, commissioned by Queen Victoria's daughter Princess Louise in the 1890s and rebuilt from an old pub. Bob Hope stayed there while entertaining troops at the nearby World War Two naval base. It fell into disuse, but was rebuilt again in the late 1950s by boatbuilder Peter Boyle.
