The huts seen in the distance in the photograph published last week brought a few replies.
Eddie Wallace says their original use was for the crews of the 4.5in anti-aircraft guns and rocket launchers that were on Southsea Common during the Second World War.
After the war the local authority (Parks and Open Spaces Dept) took them over and demolished several, but a few were retained to house the many grass cutters and other council machines such as street cleaning carts.
I then heard from Chris Chatfield who lived in the huts in the early 1950s.
He says the picture dates to the early 1950s and the building commonly called and addressed as The Huts was on the south side of Gordon Road, now Duisburg Way.
Chris lived in the huts with his parents and two sisters Cynthia and Adrienne at number nine. From there it was a short walk to school at Cottage Grove.
In 1956 the family were moved to Carlton House off Commercial Road and the buildings were demolished.
