Bournemouth’s Founders and Famous Visitors

Synopsis

The founding of a beautiful coastal town and how, in the 19th century, people flocked to Bournemouth: some for its pleasant ambience; others to avail themselves of revolutionary medical treatment on offer there, in particular for chest and rheumatic diseases. Among them was Robert Louis Stevenson, who battled pulmonary tuberculosis as he struggled to complete his novel, Treasure Island.
