Jacobs, W. W: At Sunwich Port. v1. 7 Apr 2013
William Wymark Jacobs (8 September 1863 – 1 September 1943), an English author of short stories and novels. Although much of his work was humorous, he is most famous for his horror story The Monkey's Paw.
The ancient port of Sunwich was basking in the sunshine of a July afternoon. A rattle of cranes and winches sounded from the shipping in the harbour, but the town itself was half asleep. Somnolent shopkeepers in dim back parlours coyly veiled their faces in red handkerchiefs from the too ardent flies, while small boys left in charge noticed listlessly the slow passing of time as recorded by the church clock.
NOTE: 73 Illustrations.
