Above is a family photo from 1923 of the Bournemouth Queen, submitted by Steve Phillips from Broadway USA. Steve's grand parents,Mr & Mrs Tremlett, are leaning against the rail, just to right of life ring, with black hat and bow tie with my grandmother to his right. Steve grew up in Bournemouth and spent his youth fishing off of the pier. He remembers the Embassy and the Consul paddle steamers in the 50s and early 60s. I am grateful to Steve for allowing me to share this picture with you here.
