Weymouth In Old Postcards and Photographs
Johnstone Row circa 1900
 Johnstone Row, named for the family who developed and built it. A most attractive design with slightly shallower bow windows than used in other terraces, but with similar features found  in other locations. Sadly the ground floor line has been broken with the intrusion of a business, this is where The Criterion Restaurant is today. The first property in the terrace, adjacent to Statue House, has retained the original bow front, entrance and stone steps. Above the ground floor along the terrace most of the original features have survived and are enhanced with a sympathetic approach to decoration. This view is an enlargement from one of Louis Levy’s excellent range of postcards. Sadly the adjacent terrace, Chesterfield, has not survived in it’s original form
