Lower Parkstone Photographic Project

The Butcher, the Baker, the Fishmonger and the Greengrocer at Ashley Cross, Lower Parkstone, Poole, Dorset.

A rare sight… a greengrocer, butcher, fishmonger and baker all adjacent to one another. Bournemouth Road, Lower Parkstone, Poole, Dorset. Photo taken in November 2013. The greengrocer’s shop has now closed.

Since the end of 2012 I’ve been undertaking a photographic project that documents the various businesses of Lower Parkstone in Poole, Dorset – a ‘snapshot in time’.

The Queen's Shilling, Lower Parkstone, PooleIf you have a business in Lower Parkstone that has a ‘public face’ (in other words, I can’t include people who work from home somewhere in Lower Parkstone) and you want to be included, please contact me for more information.

It is free to take part and you get your own page on my website, just like the businesses featured below.

*Please note: the photos on your page will show you and your business at the particular time of taking of the photos. That means I will not be updating or deleting them because they capture a moment in time, which is what this project is all about. However, I am happy to update your business’ opening hours, contact details etc. (e.g. website, email, telephone number) if they change.

At the end of the Project there will be an exhibition of the best and most interesting photographs, hopefully in 2018.

Read an article on the Lower Parkstone Photographic Project in the December 2013 issue of  ‘Parkstone Matters’.
