Mystery of buildings in old postcard of Bournemouth Square is solved

PETER Sykes of Swanage said Brenda Mitchell’s postcard showing Bournemouth Square with the tram loop around the roundabout printed on March 6 was installed in 1906 and allowed BCT’s conduit fitted trams in Gervis Place to access Old Christchurch Road or Richmond Hill. Another tram can be seen in Old Christchurch Road, waiting near the Mansion Family Hotel, to start the journey eastwards.
