It’s one of the most iconic photographs taken in Portsmouth in the Second World War – sailors helping move a bombed-out family into new accommodation.
It appeared in the original version of Smitten City, published after the war by The Evening News and many times in this paper since.
But the location was never revealed.
Now my colleague Bob Hind has pinpointed it thanks to his Kelly’s Directory library.
He managed to make out the name of the corner shop – a fish and chip shop called Wringles. Then, thanks to Kelly’s he discovered it was owned by an A Wringle and was on the corner of Jessie Road and Talbot Road, Southsea.
The fish fryer is now a Chinese takeaway and the bus stop – just visible on the right of the old picture – is still there.
