A Wartime Bank Holiday on Bournemouth Beach, 1944

A woman relaxing on Bournemouth beach on her August bank holiday in 1944, surrounded by tangles of barbed wire. Why she chose this spot we'll never know...

A notice on Bournemouth beach at the time reading: “The public may use and bathe from this part of the beach but at their own risk. Beware of barbed wire and other obstructions, do not touch any suspicious objects – by order 25th July 1944 Garrison Commander.”
