“A Norfolk Wherry (Supper-time). – I trust it is pardonable to mention ‘appetite’ in print, but I think most visitors to the district will agree with me, that when on a cruise it is wonderful how quickly the time between meals passes. It really seems as if one were always eating and drinking, but still, although the meals appear so close together, one always has an appetite ready to make an onslaught upon the good things provided. If appetite is a sign of health, everyone here appears to be blessed with a good store of it. Probably the bracing air is at the bottom of it.”

Letterpress description by Ernest R. Suffling accompanying Plate XCIX from ‘Sun Pictures of the Norfolk Broads’.
