19 fascinating memories of Portsmouth in 1975 - including the M27 as it was then

From a new motorway to a singing fishmonger – it was certainly eventful in Portsmouth in 1975.

After so many of you enjoyed our first look back at Portsmouth in 1975, we thought we would dig out some extra photos from our city’s past nearly 50 years ago.

In this gallery you will find some historic photos including dockyard workers leaving Unicorn Gate, the new M27, the old post office that used to stand on the corner of Commercial Road and Stanhope Road and many more nostalgic scenes.

To buy a copy of one of these photos go to the Photosales section on our website.
