We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed


This fascinating book explores the transformations that have seen Bournemouth develop from a small seaside town into a major South Coast resort and bustling centre of commerce. Beautiful archive images are skilfully contrasted with modern photographs taken from the same vantage point today, and show how Bournemouth has changed - as well as 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 East Cliff Lift, the Cloisters, the model boats once sailed at Children's Corner and the peaceful surroundings of the `Invalids Walk', Bournemouth Then & Now will rekindle fond memories for many people, and will delight residents and visitors alike.
