DOVER | 1917-18

LCDR C Class 1884

Lucy 1917

Like Folkestone, Dover was also a key point of access to the continent. Something of the excitement generated by this liminal status is suggested by Mary Braddon’s 1864 Henry Dunbar:

The train by which he travelled stopped at every station; and, though the journey […] was only to last an hour, it seemed almost interminable to this impatient traveller, who was eager to stand upon the deck of one of Messrs.—‘s electric steamers, to feel the icy spray dashing in his face, and to see the town of Dover, shining like a flaming crescent against the darkness of the night.
