Pictures of Portsmouth from the air never fail to fascinate, especially if they were shot before German bombing changed the skyline forever.
The picture here looking across Old Portsmouth was taken before the ravages of the Second World War.
The Anglican cathedral of St Thomas dominates the centre of the picture with the chimneys of the old power station at The Camber away to the left.
Alongside the cathedral we look along High Street with its grand rows of buildings and pavement-fronting shops – all destroyed by enemy bombing in January 1941.
On the right, Penny Street can be seen alongside the Garrison Church while Grand Parade in the foreground is little changed to this day.
The view of Clarence Pier, with Southsea Common stretching away behind it, was obviously taken pre-war before the structure and its distinctive circular pavilion was bombed.
The other two pictures in this series show South Parade Pier in all its glory with Canoe Lake, packed beaches and the ever-immaculate gardens.
