Five aerial pictures today of Portsmouth taken by News photographers over the years.

They include the city’s two cathedrals, the Anglican St Thomas’s in Old Portsmouth and the Catholic St John’s alongside a parched Victoria Park.

St Agatha’s Church in Market Way stands out on its island – once surrounded by streets of terraced houses, now surrounded by traffic.

We then move on to an interesting view of the civic heart of Portsmouth – the Guildhall, its square and the civic offices.

And finally, a reminder of what once was – the now-demolished Tricorn Centre with its multi-storey car park photographed when the market was in full swing in Charlotte Street.
