The horse and cart gives this photograph an air of a John Constable painting.
But this is no Flatford Mill. It was probably taken in the late 1920s or early 30s when Langstone Mill had fallen into disrepair.
By then it had been operational for nearly 200 years. The four-storey tower, which milled corn, once had four sails and worked in conjunction with a tide mill close by.
The mill was derelict in 1934 and by the start of the Second World War it had been converted into a home with the tower tarred and a new cap put on.
The picture comes from the collection of Waterlooville photographer and collector Paul Costen, as does the other picture here.
It shows a rather tatty and overgrown High Street at Langstone.
However, a stamp on the back of the card dates it to 1947 so there would have been many years of neglect during the Second World War.
