I was thinking of using this subject for then and now photographs, but when I arrived in Commercial Road precinct I could not believe it.

The whole area was taken up by sheds and other prefab buildings completely blocking a decent view, so I left it.

I thought you might like to see the old road as it was when this part of Portsmouth was so prosperous.

It was taken on March 4, 1967, at 2pm.
