HERE'S a wonderful piece of nostalgia perfect for these summer months.

This picture of one of many popular shows at Weymouth's pier bandstand shows a large crowd watching what we believe to be a military band.

Other well loved shows held at the pier bandstand were wrestling, the Weymouth Skaters' Revue and of course the summer show featuring a cowboy act with a horse called Ladybird, Harry Lester and his Hayseeds and Harry Gold and his Pieces of Eight.

Thanks to the Over 60 and Live in Weymouth and Portland group for sharing this with us.
