The Weirs Cafe
The Weirs Cafe was built in 1885, when it was attached to the second, 1880-1892 train station. In 1893, the train station was replaced by extending the Weirs Cafe to the boardwalk, where it met the 300′ canopy over the boardwalk at a right angle. The Cafe lasted for 54 years, before it burned on December 22, 1939. (The second photo below dates circa 1927. It shows the gas dock of Irwin’s Winnipesaukee Gardens in the foreground.)
