Weymouth The Postcard Collection Paperback / softback

Part of the The Postcard Collection series

Description

As a popular seaside town and resort on the south coast, Weymouth is loved by locals and visitors alike for its rich and varied history.

The town was particularly favoured by the Georgians, who popularised the seaside holiday and contributed a wealth of architecture to the town.

Weymouth's prominent fishing industry and proximity to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage site, add to its unique appeal.

In more recent years, the town has played host to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and a variety of other sports tournaments and championships.

It is for these reasons and more that Weymouth is foremost in the minds of many. Join local man Eddie Prowse for a tour around the town and the surrounding area, including the harbour and heritage sites.

Carefully selected by the author from his twenty-five-year-old collection of postcards, each image offers a fascinating record of the town and its people.
