The rare photograph on the right by Stephen Cribb shows renowned naval authority and politician Fred Jane (he of Jane’s Fighting Ships fame) electioneering in his 90hp Mercedes Benz by Unicorn Gate, Portsmouth, in 1910.

In the background you can see two more of Portsmouth’s lost pubs – The Unicorn and the unusually-named The Windmill and Sawyer.
