Although there is evidence of prehistoric settlement around Weymouth, it wasn't until 1789, when George III first visited to 'take the waters', that the town began its expansion into a popular seaside resort. This collection of photographs dating from the late Victorian era to the 1950s, shows Weymouth in a genteel heyday of bathing machines and bandstands. Each of the 180 photographs is accompanied by a meticulously detailed caption by Weymouth-born Eddie Prowse.
