“The History of Poole High Street” – a talk by Jenny Oliver
September 15 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
This is the story of Poole High Street, which has a long and sometimes surprising history, going back to medieval times. Its buildings have housed poets, pirates, shopkeepers, slave traders, rich merchants, Mayors and poor seamen. It has witnessed celebrations, tragedies, Royal visits, fire, flood and murder! Through its many changes, Jenny guides us along its historic path.
Some of you will know Jenny as Reference Librarian at Poole Library. For many years she worked with local history material and societies, and answered enquiries. Developing a personal interest in the varied history of Poole, Jenny published a book in 2013 – “The Book of Poole High Street”.
