View of Ryde in the Isle of Wight by W. Brigg. Mason’s Guide to the Isle of Wight published in 1876 describes Ryde with the following passage,

“All who have written descriptions of the town of Ryde, and the hundreds of thousands who have visited it during the last forty years, are unanimous in the opinion that for beauty and attractiveness, Ryde stands without a rival. Within the memory of men and women now living the site on which this popular watering place now stands was occupied by two insignificant villages, the inhabitants of which were mostly fishermen”.
