Synopsis

This fascinating book charts the history of Bournemouth through a variety of images depicting scenes of yesteryear along with contrasting images of contemporary views from over 100 years later. Where possible, the modern photographs have been taken from the same vantage points to illustrate how the town has changed over the century.

The archive postcards and photographs, many of which have previously been unpublished, show the gardens looking totally different, freshly laid out with a large fountain where the balloon now stands, and streets busy with trams and carts. With pictures accompanied by informative captions, this volume will rekindle fond memories in the older members of the town, and reveal a different Bournemouth for the younger members.
