Thanks for your analysis.
You are right, it has the long wing pylon.
The low resolution of the photo & the camera angles misled me as the doors (or rather the back panels of the wing pylon) are opened.
It is difficult to see them.
But for the triangular object, I am certain that this is the winch (derrick).
It is put on for exhibition during the SBAC show of 1950.
The Seagull also has an underwing ASR pack and RATOGs above the wheel well.
Thank you for your assistance.

Sorry, my bad phrasing. The triangular object I meant was the piece that appears to be folded back, running from just below the trailing edge down to the base of the winch. I see that as the rear of the pylon opening on a vertical hinge, one each side presumably.

I feel ashamed...
You were right for all !
Thank you for your help... it is not always easy to see what Supermarine did with her Seagull.

In any event, these posts bring life to this forum.

I'm not sure. I do have a Dropbox account and I had to log in to see the drawing. I have never tried to do a direct link to a Dropbox image/document. I save everything to my computer, then copy it to Photobucket and use that. That is what I did here.
