Weymouth In Old Postcards and Photographs
Augusta Place circa 1920s
 This is very different to Weymouth’s later Georgian terraces with properties within a terrace sharing features and design. Not exactly a ‘jumble’ more a pleasing assortment. It is here that the first properties were ‘turned’ to face the sea, as the habit of ‘taking the waters’ increased and an embankment was constructed to form what would eventually become ‘The Promenade’. The covered porch of The Victoria Hotel can be seen, this was originally ‘Luces Hotel’.
