There have been plenty of retailers that have come and gone at the Poole Arndale centre since it opened in 1969.

These pictures, which are part of the Grahame Austin Collection, were taken in 1972 at the popular mall and show various retailers that had shops there.

The Arndale Centre was renamed the Dolphin Centre in 1988.
