EDITORS COMMENTS
This lithograph print from c1870 captures the vibrant seaside town of Weymouth in all its glory. The detailed image showcases the Royal Victoria Inn on the left, with the sandy beach stretching out to the right. In the middle distance, a horse-drawn omnibus adds a touch of nostalgia to the scene. At the bottom of the page, a 2-2-2 tender steam locomotive and train can be seen, likely representing the GWR 2-2-2 broad gauge locomotive "Centaur". This Firefly-Class locomotive was built in 1841 by Nasmyth, Gaskell & Co. Manchester, adding an element of historical significance to this artwork. The sheet music cover for 'The Weymouth & Great Western Galop' is dedicated to Mrs. John Quicke and composed by D. Rolls, who was known for his polkas and musical talents. Published at His Pianoforte Warehouse in Weymouth and available at Cramer And Co., this piece reflects a time when music played an integral role in everyday life.

The collaboration between artists like Sherren and musicians like Rolls highlights the interconnectedness of art forms during this period. Overall, this print offers a glimpse into Victorian-era Weymouth through both visual and musical elements, capturing a moment frozen in time for us to appreciate today.
