More about this scene

Caption for Appledore, Quay 1923: Full tide brings its own burst of activity, as small passenger boats in an orderly seamanlike manner position themselves to approach the slipway. Wicker baskets carried by the ladies (in the right-hand rowing boat) were very much a feature of life until quite recent times. This boat is awaiting its turn to come alongside, once the other two have been sculled a safe distance from the water-soaked landing place. Ladies at this time continued to be handicapped by long swishing skirts.
