I know from readers’ responses that you enjoy seeing pictures of old and current pubs.
As such a rich part of the fabric of our society, the buildings always strike chords. It may be that you simply used the hostelry as a landmark and never set foot in the place, or, as is more often the case, remember it as your regular.
Thanks to the Royal Navy, Portsmouth used to have more pubs per square mile than most cities in England.
Of course, hundreds have disappeared, but their demolition or conversion cannot remove the memories of happy times spent inside.
All the pictures today are from Portsmouth, apart from the little slice of history above below which was recently uncovered at the end of East Street, Chichester.
