'Multi-View' postcards usually incorporated a number of pictures which were also produced separately as full-sized postcards, although to date I have only managed to track down two such examples from this card.
A typical 1960s 'Multi-View' card, this one is postmarked 1969. Below are the separate images, and their
present day equivalents.
This picture was taken from the end of the school grounds, and shows the Royal George Hotel (more a pub)
and the church tower, plus houses at the top of East Hill.
Due to a large hedge the view is now obscured from the school grounds, and so this was taken a little lower down
and outside the hedge. The Royal George is no longer a public house, and more buildings are going up in what was the car park.
NOTE: This building work is now complete and I hope to add a photograph here soon.
North Street is the main A352 Dorchester to Cerne Abbas road. This view shows the New Inn.
The present day view shows a few changes. The New Inn is now The Inn for all Seasons, and the fence has been
replaced by a wall. The garage has now gone.
Alley Bridge and Lane, incorrectly titled!
Virtually no changes here.
