Weymouth In Old Postcards and Photographs
Grosvenor Place and Clarence Buildings circa 1890s
 This is another of the fine terraces displaying a grand variety of Georgian styles. The bow windows on the first building have been replaced  with modern glazing. However the adjacent building, now a hotel, retains the original features with the exception of the four gables at roof level. The next building, also a hotel, has also retained much of it’s original appearance and both benefit from sympathetic exterior decoration. I am still to find photographs of the properties beyond. The statue is of Sir Henry Edwards and was erected in recognition of his service as MP for the town from 1867 to1885. He was also a generous benefactor to the town.
