Entitled - Southwold.
Below the picture an inscription read:
Southwold - There is a ring of importance about the name of this pretty little east coast watering-place that is somewhat deceptive.
One is inclined to picture, as one sees it in print, a smart and fashionable holiday haunt with the customary pier and promenade, and the inevitable and somewhat wearisome supply of seaside "attractions." Such, however, is very far from being the case.
Southwold remains a quiet, sleepy, picturesque, and wholly delightful retreat, innocent alike of piers and nigger minstrels, of ugly terraces, and of those indications of "life" which induce lovers of peace and the picturesque to fly in dismay from popular resorts by the sea.
Round about this charming place there is abundant material for the archaeologist, the artist, and the romancist, as well as the idle holiday-maker - for all, in fact, who love quiet beauty and quaintness.
There is about Southwold a curiously unconventional air which instantly charms the visitor whose soul does not pine for a brass band and a general uproar.
As soon as Halesworth is left behind, and the droll little toy train begins its fussy journey to the coast, along the Southwold branch line, one begins to realize that the resort for which one is bound is no ordinary place.
The whole town seems to overflow with sunshine, which lights up every corner of its rambling, unconventional streets; yet the eye is never wearied, because, turn where you will - round by the church, in and out of the market-place, among the trim villas and shops, and even by the sea itself - there is always a little "green," a miniature common, round which all the houses and buildings of this delightful little town are arranged in pretty groups.
If you buy an item and then see it relisted this is because we occasionally have more than one available, each page is original and not a photocopy.
