When you take a stroll along the Bournemouth promenade do you ever wonder when it was built?

Well, this photo from the Peter’s Collection shows the official opening of the first section of the Undercliff Drive and promenade on the 6 November 1907.

The Mayor, Alderman A.J. Parsons is pictured with the Mayoress with the Undercliff Drive Committee all walk the section after a ribbon cutting. The final section of the prom was completed in 1914.
