Description

At this time Dorset had already been a popular place for a holiday or day trip for many years, and the railways brought even more visitors to the area. This area of the south coast is especially interesting to geologists, and Chesil beach was a place that attracted great attention. This photograph was one of a series taken to advertise holidays in Cornwall, at locations served by the Great Western Railway's lines. Photographs like this were often displayed inside railway carriages.
