THEN:  An Edwardian scene in Somers Road, Southsea, looking north. Pains Road is on the right. Picture: Barry Cox Collection.

NOSTALGIA: This Portsmouth street hadn’t changed in 60 years, then suddenly...

What a pity colour photography was not available for photographers back in early Edwardian times.

If it had been this view of Victoria Park in the centre of Portsmouth would have been glorious.

Taken in mid-summer we see women in sennet hats and a man in a blazer and straw boater to the right.
