"Dover! There is a charming quaintness in the very name which suggests a thousand pleasant associations to all whose happy lot it has been to visit a place that has been famous from those Roman days when it was known as 'Dubris,' and those times when peopled by a Norman race, it was called 'Dovere'...Of all its defences, the principal stronghold was naturally the Dover Castle, whose attractive and imposing proportions at the present day are so beautifully depicted in our photographic illustrations...A very pleasant part of Dover is Victoria Park, a range of handsome residences built in the shadow of the Castle, and a view of which is given in the photograph of Castle Street. The houses were only recently erected, and are occupied by some of the principal inhabitants of the town."
