Weymouth Quayside 1956
Weymouth Quayside 1956
This photograph was taken a couple of years after the wooden Ritz Theatre had burnt down. Just a small relic remains in the left of the picture. The ferry alongside went to the Channel Islands and came back laden with tomatoes which were collected by the "boat train" and sent up to London.
