Daytrips: Poole & Bournemouth, 1967.



John bought a bungalow on Panorama Road in Poole for his Aunt Mimi in 1965. He would regularly drive down from Kenwood to visit her, sometimes staying for a few days. Here they are, shortly after getting off the nearby Bournemouth ferry in early 1967. Also, a pic of Mimi sitting on John's favourite spot behind the house. The bungalow was sold after Mimi's death in 1992, and has since, inevitably, been demolished.(John also bought houses or flats for Pete Shotton (as part of the supermarket block on Hayling Island) and his art school friend Jonathan Hague (in Leamington in 1967, which Hague still owns)). Apologies for the poor comp - if anyone has anything better, get in touch!
