The wooden walls of old England

The wooden walls of old England. Punch (8 September 1866): 108.

Miss Ethel (at the door of the Bathing-Machine) is, we regret to say, thinking less of the imposing Scene than of the Treachery of Charles, Maria, and Laura, who are all invisible to us, but whom she sees but too distinctly, going off in a Boat to Fish, in violation of their Promise to wait for her. She positively hates the litte Euqustrian who has neglected her incessant Cries for the Horse, and altogether we fear her Bathe to-day will do her little good.
