“‘Express’ Wherry leaving Acle Bridge. – With a fair wind she is about to traverse the 12 miles of river which lie between Acle Bridge and Yarmouth. For flat marshland, with its hundreds of cows, it would be difficult to match this dozen miles of water-way in all England; for its companion picture one must cross the North Sea to Holland, where its counterpart may be seen in very many places.”

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