Wimborne Junior School is celebrating its centenary this year and I asked readers for their memories or pictures of their time at the Southsea school.

Sadie Cole has e-mailed the two images here. She and her brother Johnny were members of the stamp club, right, which she says was run by Harry Right, the teacher in the picture. Sadie is on the left of Harry and her brother is third from the left in the bottom row. Do stamp clubs still exist in schools?

This picture of the Phoenix pub brought back memories for Harry Cottrell.
He says: 'I have to say that I am surprised it is still there after all these years.
'Torrington Road was part of my paper round when I was 14 and worked for Amberley News Shop in London Road opposite Doyle Court.'
