Southsea maternity home pictures

40 pictures from the last 40 years of Southsea Skatepark

Have your say

Matt Tozer was born in Eddystone Maternity Home (circled) at 24, Festing Road, Southsea, in 1965, and he wonders if any readers have a photograph of it.

He says: ‘The building disappeared about five years later and I have never seen a picture of it.

‘I have drawn a blank at the History Centre in the library, both through my own research and with the professional help of the staff. The closest I can get is this aerial shot from about 1928 but it’s too distant to be of any real value.

‘There must have been a fair few people born in the Eddystone during its 20 or so years in Festing Road.’
