A trio of pictures today showing the top end of High Street, Cosham, when it was still known as a village.

Two of them are taken from the same spot – its junction with Havant Road – the first with an ornate signpost and horse trough in the middle of the road.

None is dated but the second picture looks as if it was taken as the 19th century became the 20th. They were sent to me by Wendy Wyatt, of Marshlands Road, Bedhampton.
