Carter tile panel at Sandbanks

This is possibly the last in place of several similar panels made by Carter's Tiles in the 1950s. (Carter's later became Poole Pottery.) It was designed by Arthur Nickols, and it is placed to give the "Welcome to Poole" message to anyone arriving at Sandbanks on the chain ferry which makes the short crossing of the mouth of Poole Harbour.
