Weymouth In Old Postcards and Photographs
Royal Terrace And Frederick Place circa 1900
 Royal Terrace, the building of which commenced around 1815, occupies what was, once, known as The Royal Shrubbery. Apparently a fairly untidy place. It seems that the erection of the Kings Statue was the spur to the building of the many Georgian terraces. The elegance of those buildings is a match for any of Bath’s terraces, sadly Weymouth was not able to recognise their beauty and potential in the same way as that fine city. Royal Terrace today is an ugly sprawl when compared to the view above. Beyond is Frederick Place  and behind the Statue are the two bowed ends framing St. Thomas St. and St Mary’s St. which were  added 6 years after the Statue was unveiled.
