Today we start our Remember When countdown to Christmas.

There are now 12 days left until the big day and each day until then, both here and online at portsmouth.co.uk, we shall bring you a picture from the past which captures the flavour of the season.
Call it a host of Christmases past...

And to start proceedings we go back to 1933 when Portsmouth Corporation pushed out the tram to get passengers in the mood.
