Is the Garibaldi Arms, Strand Street still standing? If not does any one know when it was demolished/had change of use.

I have had a quick google and nothing is appearing.
However, if you contact Poole Local History Centre and Archives (http://www.poole.gov.uk/go.php?structureID=U464057c6c52db&ref=S46BC7E889FE5A), they may be able to help.
Good luck, and let us know how you get on.

I've just returned from Poole - if this had been posted a day earlier I could have brought some photographs back ;)!
However, if you go to Multimap.co.uk and use Bird's Eye View, I think you'll agree that Strand Street, Poole appears to have been totally redeveloped.

If nothing else works let me know - I have a contact in the area who would probably be able to find the answer quite easily.

Huge thank you's all round to Jan 1954, Peter Goodey, Dorset Girl and Mutley for your various input.
I contacted Poole Local History Centre and they e-mailed me that The Garibaldi Inn (my grandmother was born there in 1894 but the birth certificate says Garibaldi Arms) became a lodging house in 1894.
They also sent me two black and white photographs taken from Dennetts Lane showing GA to the right but with demolition works in progress. They apolgised for not having better photographs (rear view) but I was very impressed that they took the time to actually locate photographs for me.

Well done Diane - it's nice when a Centre like that takes the time and trouble to assist. I've emailed my friend in Poole - he just emailed back saying he is still checking - was it anything to do with the Garibaldi biscuits|banghead|!
If he comes up with anything useful will let you know!

was it anything to do with the Garibaldi biscuits?
Without doubt both the pub and certainly the biscuit were named after Giuseppe Garibaldi, the Italian hero who I'll leave you to Google for.
