That's a Hamilton cargo door. Later Hamilton doors were split in the middle and hinged on the front and back to make it easier to load with a forklift. This arrangement works very well for a seaplane!

This is a serious floatplane. They've even removed the landing gear lever! Most of the Twin Beech's stay on floats for years at a time.

Climbing in through the forward-hinged door which is part of the Bristol Mod. This would be easier than some of the pilot's side-window, escape hatches that we used in U.S. freighters and sprayers.
