A Great Western Railway 'boat train' meets the Channel Islands ferry at Weymouth quay, c 1900. The connecting service which unusually ran through the town's streets made it posible to complete the journey from London to Guernsey in twelve hours. The image which shows a busy quayside was taken with a Kodak No 2 box camera, which produced characteristic circular negatives.
