About this image
Looking SSW across to Nottinghamshire from Derbyshire. The Thrumpton Ferry crossing point is off picture to the left. Thrumpton Village is beyond the trees to the right. Copy of a postcard, Kingsway Series no.S9409. The ferryman is presumably either John Ankers, who is listed in Kelly's Directory of Notts. (1904 ed.); or George Carbin, who is listed in 'Kelly's' from 1908 through to 1941 (the last Notts. ed.).
