Hi I have looked everywhere I can think of for a newspaper article about a motorcycle accident my Dad has in 1953 on the corner of Rippon Rd and Strouden Rd Bournemouth. Any help greatly appreciated TIA  :)

Online newspapers only appear to have Hampshire Telegraph & Portsmouth Evening News for that period.

Have you tried contacting the Bournemouth echo.  :-\

The Dorset History Centre in Dorchester holds copies of local newspapers of microfilm.  It might be worth contacting them.
