Looking obliquely north, over the roofs of two carriages
standing in the Stour Valley Bay, towards Coffee House Bay. The nearest
carriage with the double doors open is one of fifty-one LNWR tri-composite
carriages built between May 1891 to May 1895*. The coupe compartment is 2nd
class whilst the first class compartment (next to the luggage compartment) had
access to the lavatory. This coloured postcard is one of two the other can be
seen below. As you can see both are different in the colour wash applied.
