Description

London & South Western Railway (LSWR) carriage photographs. The first shows a wooded lane near Freshwater, Isle of Wight, crosed by a small bridge. The image of Lynmouth, shows a wooded area known as Watersmeet, with several rivers meeting in the centre. This was the scene of a disastrous flood in August 1952. Torrential thunderstorms on Exmoor caused flash floods to pour down the steep river valleys through the coastal village of Lynmouth, destroying buildings and killing 34 people. Colour photography by The Photochrom Company Limited, 61 St Paul's Churchyard, London.
