Bournemouth, c.1900s

© This image is not to be copied or published without permission


A Punch & Judy show is in full swing and has drawn a large crowd. The Pier Hotel and Sydenham Reading Rooms dominate the background; these stood roughly where the Imax now stands. The Reading rooms were demolished in 1934. Scanned from the photographer's original negative. Most of these images were taken before he started producing postcards, and before he saved his images on glass plates.
