Moonbeam as depicted in a supplement to The Yachtsman, No. 658, November, 1903. Photo is by Kirk & Son of Cowes. Jeff points out that the sides of the cockpit are rolled. I’m not quite convinced – I think there may be a tender on the port side, and a rolled-up sail on the starboard.

Gleniffer. There’s no attribution but the image is a Photomezzotype,and was probably taken before 1895. St Andrew’s flag flies on the forepeak. She looks new, says Jeff, even in this old picture.
Iverna. Again, there’s attribution to show who took the shot. Jeff says that he thinks she is carved and gilded under the bowsprit, and adds that she’s also an interesting hull shape with lots of room inside.
Colombine, winner of the Emperor’s Cup, 1900. This photo appears in a supplement to The Yachtsman, No. 489, August 1900. The photo is by W U Kirk & Sons of Cowes.
A bonus photo tonight, but as yet with no information. This is Heartsease:
