Weymouth Revisited
Weymouth Revisited
  • Description
Through illustrations which span four centuries, Weymouth Revisited takes another look at the changing face of the town and its surrounding villages. Artists began depicting this favourite holiday haunt of royalty when King George III's visits to the seaside in the late 1700s brought Weymouth fame as England's premier health and pleasure resort. In the days before the invention of the camera, paintings and engravings of the seafront, harbour, town and countryside were popular souvenirs which visitors might purchase to take home and display as a reminder of their stay by the sea. By the mid- nineteenth century photography was developing apace, and some of the earliest known photographs of Weymouth were taken by a local man, William Thompson, who is also recognised as a pioneer of underwater photography. By the end of the Victorian era the town was being very well recorded in photographs, the numbers of which increased dramatically when the craze for collecting picture postcards caught on in the early years of the twentieth century. ISBN 1871164443, hardback, 297x210mm, 160 pages.
