That is very interesting reading. Bournemouth has an awful lot of history, have you tried contacting Bournemouth Bourgh council http://www.bournemouth.gov.uk/HomePage.aspx they may be able to help.
Have a look at this link http://www.boscombechinegardens.org/ as it mentions an 1890s lodge in Boscombe Chine Gardens and you can contact them to find out more. My father did walk about tours in Bournemouth back in the late 70s and he new such a lot about Bournemouth, and Chine cottage rings a bell, I am sure he had mentioned this. Unfortunately he is no longer with us but I will have a look through his papers etc on Bournemouth to see if I can find out anything for you. Good Luck.
