Can you guess where this picture was taken?

The image, captured in the early 1950s, shows a view that will be instantly familiar to many.

So where was it taken exactly?

Bournemouth Echo: Picture: Red House Museum

It's Christchurch High Street! Well done if you guessed correctly.

The image shows shops along the west side and the town library.

The Ship Hotel, now simply known as The Ship, can be seen on the right of the images.
