This fascinating range of photographs explores the transformations that have seen Bournemouth develop from a small seaside town attracting invalids looking for a breath of fresh air, to a major South Coast resort and bustling center of commerce. Many of the beautiful archive images have never been published before and are drawn from the author’s own collection, painstakingly collected over many years. Skillfully contrasted with the modern photographs taken from the same vantage points, this new title illustrates how Bournemouth has changed and points out the familiar landmarks that have remained. From the gardens as they originally appeared, freshly laid out with a large fountain where the balloon now stands, to the streets busy with trams and carts that have been replaced with cars and buses, Bournemouth Past and Present will rekindle fond memories in the older members of the town, and reveal a different Bournemouth for the younger members.
John Needham has always lived in Bournemouth. Over the years he has developed a strong interest in the history and heritage of the town, in particular the great changes he has witnessed. John has collected hundreds of archive postcards of Bournemouth which illustrate the town through the ages.
