In this marvellous shot looking across from Greetham Street in 1929, we see the 2.38pm train to Reading leaving from the High Level.
To the left is the as yet un-bombed original Guildhall and to the forefront are tram lines running along Greetham Street. Behind the water tower is the goods yard, which was replaced by a new yard at Fratton in July 1936.
This itself has been replaced over the past five years by the Fratton Centre.
