If you thought Weymouth's grid-locked summer traffic situation was unique to modern times, then think again!

This picture taken by late Dorset Evening Echo photographer Harry Green shows traffic outside the Crown Hotel in St Thomas Street, Weymouth.

It's a great nostalgic look at Weymouth's past from the 1960s or 70s.

The number 24 double decker bus, which is just about to go over the Town Bridge, is on its way to the Sidney Hall. It's sponsored by South Dorset Cleaners.

Among the many queuing cars is a Jaguar. We can also see a parked up bicycle and what looks like a taxi emerging onto the street. 

You'll probably also recognise the Crown Hotel, a historic former coaching inn, still popular today.  In the 19th century it was a meeting place of merchants and ship's masters to trade their business. Being quite large and close to the harbour, it was ideally situated as a trading post.
