Supermarine Stranraer: Photo # 107 is of the rear fuselage top decking between the rear gunner/observer's position and the tail area.  Photo # 106 is a close up of some of the details.  Note all areas of the aircraft covered with metal had heavy round capped riveting.  This was long before flush riveting was used.  One of the Stick & Tissue senior members of Canadian origin said his uncle flew in the Stranraer as an observer and said regardless of the book publications, the plane climbed at 90 mph, cruised at 90 mph, and landed at 90 mph.

Supermarine Stranraer: Photos # 43 & 42 show close up of the support cables of the right wingtip float as viewed from slightly inside the area between the float the fuselage looking up at the lower wing.

All remaining photos are, looking straight at extreme tail from the rear.

Supermarine Stranraer:  Photos # 30, 29, & 28 are views of the right wingtip float as viewed from the outside looking toward the fuselage.  Notice photo # 28 shows a close up of the control rod exiting the lower wing comes more from the covering than any resemblance of a cover or tube as typically the case of mose control rods or cables.
Photos # 51, 52, # 53 are views of the right wingtip float as seen from the inside looking out to the wingtip.

Supermarine Sranraer:  Photo # 119 shows the folded co-pilot's seat against the wall.  Its just barely noticeable.  This provides access to the extreme nose of the aircraft.  Above the folded seat, is a bracket (with holes) used to be pulled out to provide back support for the pilot's seat.  One presumes that there are cushions available for the seats.....  Another aircraft, the Martin B-26 Marauder also provides the same folding co-pilot's seat arrangements, in this case, to allow the bombardier access to the crawl space to his station in the glass nose.  Photos # 110 and # 120 allows comparison between what it looks like from both the inside and outside of the same side door hatch.  Photos # 125, 126, & 127 shows the top surface of the fuselage just behind the wing trailing edge looking forward, and portions of the top surface of the right wing and close ups of the engine/top wing supports.

Supermarine Stranraer:  Photo # 109 is the rear bulkhead behind the co-pilot's seat also providing a passageway for people to enter the cockpit and, some cases into the extreme nose.  Photo # 98 shows the crawl space under the co-pilot's control wheel to allow access to the extreme nose.  Photo # 108 is the interior of the extreme nose,  Note the hatch.
