An exhibition surrounding the history of Bournemouth is on display at Bournemouth library.

The display, called 'Our Town' tells the story of the development of Bournemouth over the years dating back to the 1600s when the town was owned by the Cooper Dean estate.

A selection of reproductions from the Cooper Dean archive will be showcased alongside work by pupils at St Peter's School who created their own proposals for future developments in the town centre.

The exhibition will take place from July 31 until August 11.
