One of the uncertainties at present is exactly where the cables came ashore as it is described in local books as
variously directly in front of the company offices and directly in front of the "Grand Atlantic" hotel which is
reported to have been named for the cable. Both statements cannot be true but in front of the Grand Atlantic there
is this building on the sea front with a possibly suggestive logo?
I have no actual evidence for this connection though and it is more likely that the connection is simply one of
contemporaneity - the cables were a local development of which Weston was proud at the time. (And I now think the
cables were probably a few hundred yards west of this location.)
(Spring 2003) Chris Richards at the museum has pointed out these devices on an art deco building not far from
the front - again evocative of the cable ?
The Grand Pier Opening. There were already 2 cables, landing nearby, when this opened in
