Two photographs here showing London Road, Waterlooville, in different eras and long before the dreaded term pedestrianisation had been brought into use.

The older picture, judging by the ages of the cars, looks as though it was taken in the late 1950s or early 60s.

It is looking north to the crossroads where you could turn left for Denmead. The Southern Gas showroom and Halifax Building Society are on the left.

The more recent picture was taken about 1970 in the days when a certain beer was claimed to ‘work wonders’ for you. It’s advertised on the side of The Wellington pub in the picture looking south.

Both pictures come from the collection of Waterlooville photographer and collector Paul Costen at costen.co.uk.
