    The buff-coloured funnels of Cosens paddle steamers were once a common sight along the Dorset coast, vessels such as Embassy, Consul, and Monarch taking passengers from the piers at Weymouth and Bournemouth to the Isle of Wight, Swanage and Portland and landing by ramp onto the beach at Lulworth Cove. This illustrated history recalls the heyday of the Weymouth company between the late 19th century and the 1960s through postcards, archive photographs and advertising materials.
