Auction: Victorian Bournemouth in an attic

Auctioneers Davey and Davey will be putting up for sale a photo album, dating back to the 1870s, that was recently found in an attic in a home at Parkstone.  Much of the fascination of the album lies in seeing the foundations of modern Bournemouth taking shape. There is a view of Westover Villas near St Peter's Church, not far from where Austin Reed stands today. The area west of the pier, where Hot Rocks stands today, can be seen part-developed.

The auction is on Saturday 22nd June, 10am, at Davey and Davey at 13 St Peter's Road. You can read the rest of the news article here.
