Community History

The following boards are part of a history project through Bournemouth University, which is designed to bring the subject of Bournemouth's aviation history to a wider audience through the platform of Pinterest. Traditionally this subject is not something that younger people engage widely with and the idea of basing the project on Pinterest is that it may be stumbled upon by a new, less conventional audience via their use of the platform.
