Miscellaneous photos 4, Christchurch in May 2020

This page follows Miscellaneous photos 3, the 1960s. I took these photos in the late afternoon of May 1st 2020 in Christchurch on the Dorset coast.

Looking towards timber company premised past the railway bridge where Fairmile Road becomes Bargates. The lopped trees are on Stour Road.

The sequence starts from the railway bridge where Fairmile Road becomes Bargates, proceeds down to the High street, left onto Bridge Street, right onto Convent Walk to the quay, then towards Church Street with a minor diversion peeking over the garden wall of the Red House museum, then back up the High Street and Bargates.

This was during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, during which many shops were closed and pedestrians kept a two-metre distance apart, unless they were members of the same household.
