A 1969 Student

A Memory of Boscombe

For a very enjoyable year I lived at no 17 in Florence Road, a turning halfway down to the beach and off Sea road in Boscombe (see photo). I became one of the first persons in the country to study for a Higher National Diploma in Tourism. My college was then called Bournemouth College of Technology, situated at the Lansdowne, Bournemouth. One of my classmates was John Donaldson who went on to be the Head of Thomas Cook's, the International Travel Agent.
