We have delved into the archives again to bring you these pictures from the 1930s.

We're particularly taken with the image of Bowleaze Cove, Weymouth, which shows the iconic art deco hotel the Riviera and numerous bathers enjoying what is no doubt a gorgeous summer's day.

You can't miss the Eldridge Pope brewery in our 1935 picture of Dorchester whilst our 1930 picture of Wareham shows a very compact town, significantly less developed than it is today.

Weymouth's elegant Georgian seafront is the star of our 1936 picture. Again, the beach is extremely busy and the golden sands are packed with bathing machines which were so popular at that time.
