Take a trip down
Memory Lane with this wonderful collection of old film combined with
reports of the time from the archives of the Bournemouth Daily Echo.
The many events
captured on film and described by the Echo include: a recruitment
march through the town in 1915; the visit of the Prince of Wales in
1927; Bournemouth in the second World War; reviving the holiday
spirit in the 1950s; the town’s coronation celebrations in 1953; the
heyday of the trolleybuses.
We also see many
scenes of local people going about their everyday business and some
fascinating views of the town that are sure to bring memories
flooding back for those who remember the Bournemouth of old.
old films are brought to you with the kind permission of Bournemouth
Borough Council Libraries.
