Weymouth The Golden Years
Weymouth The Golden Years
  • Description
Graham Herbert was an award-winning photographer whose father had founded a photographic business in Weymouth in the 1920s. On Graham's death in 1983, his widow Mollie presented his vast collection of photographic negatives to Weymouth Library. It is from these that the selection for Weymouth: The Golden Years has been made. The photographs date mainly from the 1950s onwards and few have been widely published before. They show the town undergoing great change as areas damaged in World War II air raids were rebuilt, when individual buildings and sometimes whole streets disappeared. Weymouth spread outwards onto previously open spaces in the race to meet targets set for the provision of new homes. Harbour scenes reflect changing trade patterns and the eventual decline of the paddle steamer, so long a feature of holidays here. Packed beaches reflect the resurgence of the traditional family holiday by the sea which followed the bleak war years when hotels and guest houses had been requisitioned and the sands occupied by barbed wire and tank traps. ISBN 1871164370, hardback, 210x297mm, 160 pages.
