Thatched cottages at South Walsham - the photographer John Payne Jennings captured
the same scene in the 1880s which was published in his book “Sun Pictures of the
Another Broadland cottage - possibly also taken at South Walsham?
A thatched boathouse, also pictured in 1902.
Beaumont’s Mill which stood just below Ludham Bridge on the River Ant.
This appears to have been the sailing cruiser which was hired by Joseph Benson for
the 1902 holiday, pictured here on the River Ant. As yet, I have been unable to identify
the craft, although in subsequent years they do seem to have hired exclusively from
Ernest Collins yard at Wroxham.
This photograph of a trading wherry being quanted along a narrow stretch in 1902
looks as though it may also have been taken on the River Ant.
Joseph captured the racing at one of the regattas in 1902 - possibly Potter Heigham?
This is the yacht “America” which was built by Ernest Collins at Wroxham, and would
have been fairly new at the time this photograph was taken in 1902. America was 43ft
in length, with a 10ft beam, and was listed for hire in Harry Blakes 1908 yachting
list at between £6 to £10 per week including two attendants.
