Situated on Mount Ephraim. This image is taken from an advertisement in the 15th edition of the Pelton Guide to Tunbridge Wells (1896). The description reads:
"South Aspect. - 435ft. above the Sea.
HIGH CLASS FURNISHED APARTMENTS
BOARD IF DESIRED
Lovely views of the Common and Neighbourhood.
VERY MODERATE TERMS FOR WINTER AND PERMANENT RESIDENTS
Mr. & Mrs. A. Dennis."
This is card No. 26 in the LL Series, showing the Wellington Hotel and Rock from the common. I've always thought that Mount Ephraim has the feel of a front in a seaside town like Hastings or Eastbourne - just imagine the sea where the common is!
