Ballinlaw ferry

A visitor to my page on the tidal Barrow is a descendant of ferrymen at Ballinlaw on the Barrow. He would like to find a photograph (or, presumably, other illustration) of the ferry boat and I would welcome more information about the service (eg when it ended).

If anyone knows of a possible source of information or illustration, I will pass it on to the enquirer.

Update January 2019: much information about Ballinlaw Ferry from Andrew Doherty here.
