THE SQUARE FROM THE BOURNEMOUTH EYE BALLOON. BOURNEMOUTH. DORSET. JUNE 2008
The Bournemouth Eye is a tethered ballon in the Lower Pleasure Gardens that rises to 500 feet to give a panoramic, birds eye view of the town. Place your cursor over parts of the image to reveal further information. A very potted history of The Square......... The Square is where seven roads leading to and from all parts of the borough converge. Although not geographically at the centre of town it is at the heart of what is known as the Town Centre. The seven roads are.....Old Christchurch Rd ,Gervis Place, Exeter Rd, Commercial Rd, Avenue Rd, Bourne Ave and Richmond Hill. Two hundred years ago and beyond it was the point at which the Bourne stream was crossed, by way of a ford, by those travelling over the unspoilt heath that lay between Christchurch and Poole. The area was frequented by smugglers who carried out their illegal goings on along this isolated section of coast through much of the 1700s and early 1800s. From the mid 1700s a small property, Bourne House / Decoy Pond Cottage stood where Debenhams now stands, with an associated decoy pond, used for hunting and trapping wildfowl, being created along the Bourne stream where the War Memorial now stands in the Central Pleasure Gardens. The Square has undergone a number of facelifts in the last 200 years since Bournemouth was officially founded in 1810 by Lewis Tregonwell. The ford was replaced by a wooden bridge in the late 1830s, then a stone one in 1849. Over time the bridge was replaced and the area enlarged resulting in the stream running underground as it flowed from the Central Pleasure Gardens into the Lower Pleasure Gardens on its way to the sea, meaning it can be crossed by thousands of people every day without anyone having to get their feet wet. Not suprisingly the area was known as The Bridge but became known as The Square from the mid 1850s. In 1899 a roundabout with a tall lamp post was created in the centre of The Square which survived until around WW1 when a plain oval 'roundabout', minus the lamp post, replaced it. In 1925 a Captain Norton donated a shelter cum waiting room, adorned by a clock, that was used by tram and trolleybus passengers until 1948, when it was replaced by a large roundabout in the middle of which stood a tall pedestal with the clock from the shelter ontop. In 1992 The Square was semi-pedestrianised with a path created across the roundabout to link the two sides, with the opening of the fully pedestrianised Square, complete with a pebble mosaic, Millenium Flame and Obscura Cafe coming in February 2000.
LEVERETT AND FRYE. EXETER RD / COMMERCIAL RD. THE SQUARE. BOURNEMOUTH. DORSET. 1899
Originally the site of Bourne House / Decoy Pond Cottage, built in the mid 1700s in connection with a nearby decoy pond, on the undeveloped heath that lay between Christchurch and Poole. This terrace was formed by joining two shorter terraces together in the latter 1860s. Leverett and Frye opened one of their twelve stores here in 1872 before closing in 1913 to make way for the new Bobby's department store that opened in 1915, which was renamed Debenhams in 1972. The far left hand end of the terrace was occupied originally by Ferrey and Sons drapery store, and later by the Victoria Library. In 1897 the library was demolished and replaced by a tall building that was home to Lawrence the Chemist. The structure was later retained within the fabric of the Bobby's [ Debenhams ] department store. It isn't seen in the above image as it has been 'airbrushed' out of the negative. Photoshop and image manipulation is nothing new ! The far right hand end of the terrace was occupied by a dairy shop that survived the building of Bobby's but was eventually demolished when they expanded their premises in 1927.
