Beschreibung:

Embassy, Consul, Monarch and Emperor of India were just some of the well-loved paddle steamers operated by Cosens of Weymouth along the scenic Dorset coast before services ceased when Embassy was withdrawn in 1966. The distinctive Cosens fleet with their buff funnels became a part of the Dorset coast scenery for a century. Cosens offered passengers from the crowded piers at Weymouth and Bournemouth the opportunity to cruise to the Isle of Wight, Swanage, Portland as well as landing by ramp onto the beach at the picturesque Lulworth Cove. In addition, they offered cruises to West Dorset and Devon resorts such as Torquay, Seaton and Lyme Regis as well as to France during the busy Edwardian period. Cosens became an important part of daily life at Weymouth, with their extensive and busy workshops providing employment for townsfolk who helped repair many famous South Coast steamers. Cosens were a central and well-loved part of the life and scenery of Weymouth and Dorset during the heyday of the paddle steamer and are fondly remembered by former passengers and holidaymakers alike.
