I think this is the "Calais-Douvres" (1878; 1,925grt ) of the London, Chatham & Dover Railway Co. (She has "LC&DR" marked on the hulls forward.) Similar earlier steamer "Castalia" (1874; 1,533grt) proved too slow and was purchased by LC&DR but was never operated by them and was laid up from 1876. Twin hulls with twin paddles in between intended to make vessel more stable in the interests of passenger comfort.

Yes, the title was Calais-Douvres, but I found the picture reproduced several times on the net and everywhere with the name Castalia, so I presumed the Museum was the one who was in the wrong.
