Have your say

I wonder how many of you can remember when Highland Road between the Gravediggers pub and Henderson Road was full of local shops? You didn’t even have to go into town to purchase your needs as it was all there for you.

The Broadway was a section of the road that ran from 131, Highland Road, just east of Winter Road, to 165 at the junction with Hellyer Road.

Note the Portsmouth coat of arms on the tram wire standard.
