Portsmouth: A Century of Change Britain in Old Photographs

by John Sadden

Portsmouth: A Century of Change Britain in Old Photographs Synopsis

Almost all the images in this collection of intriguing photographs have never been published before. They cover over a century of Portsmouth's rich history, during which street scenes changed beyond recognition. Communities grew and then were fragmented by war, road schemes and redevelopment. Independent shops and businesses such as tailors and milliners went out of fashion and many pubs called time forever. The navy and army presence grew when clouds of war gathered, and shrank with the coming of peace. These evocative images record a wide range of the city's experiences. Buildings, streets, transport and wartime are all featured, as are, of course, the people of Portsmouth. From Victorian spectators at a sports day to punks on Southsea prom, the changing experience of everyday work, leisure and play will delight anyone wanting to discover the Portsmouth of yesteryear.
