Iris Newman has been taking The News since 1948 and particularly enjoys Remember When and our sister Saturday feature Pictures from the Past.
Mrs Newman, of Southdown Road, Cosham, sent a clutch of pictures which remind us of the halcyon days of Southsea as a bustling yet still elegant British seaside resort.
She says: ‘Thank you for all the hours of reading I have had.’
And a little mischievously she added another photograph.
It shows the magnificent urinals and cubicles, Victorian of course, in Rothesay, Scotland– a toilet block she discovered on holiday north of the border.
She says they were opened in 1899 and have been refurbished and now also include showers.
‘It does put ours to shame,’ adds Iris.
It made me wonder if any of our Southsea loos (those still open) might feature in any Scottish newspaper sent in by a reader struck by their ornate nature.
