Steam-ships and "Steamer-folk", Lulworth Cove; Sir Frederick Treves.




Postcard above stamped Weymouth,  October 14, 1909


I rather envy the "trippers", the "steamer people" or "steamer folk"
 as Sir Frederick Treves referred to that "hearty multitude"
and the paddle-steamer passengers in 1906 (Highways & Byways in Dorset). 

"West Lulworth…where is the famous and romantic cove known to so many holiday-makers and 'steamer folk' ".
