Undated but almost certainly for the final show of the Friday Club in 1922 as the image incorporates elements from the promenade at Dymchurch. In 1921 Nash suffered a severe breakdown, diagnosed as ‘war strain.’ To recuperate he rented a cottage, with his wife Margaret, at Dymchurch on the Kent coast.
