Ive Travel 1965, WH Smith 1980
Who remembers local travel agents? The big one used to be Exchange Travel in Parkstone Road and used to be a good one in Robertson Street which I think was called Travel Time? I remember even Stylus Records when they had a shop by the fountain were selling holidays. Also was Hollingsworths selling holidays at one stage? Any others you remember?
Chris Pook… I think Exchange Travel was in Parker Rd – next the Seeboard Depot.
Alan Esdaile… Yes your right Chris, Thanks.
Paul Durrant… Great to see the Ive Travel ad……run by Ted Ive Local Councillor and later the business and Battle Road premises became IveDrive car and van hire…..and the local band connection is that Ted’s son Richard Ive was road manager of Damaris……..Richard now lives in NZ.
