Here we can see St Helen’s Parade at Southsea as it was in 1930.
There’s not a car in sight, just two cyclists. A lone tram is making its way west towards the pier, which is located just to the right of the camera. To the left are St Helen’s homes for more well-heeled residents.
In the modern photo of St Helen’s Parade, the trams have long gone and are replaced by diesel buses and cars. To the left, where there once was a blank wall and garden, is the Royal Beach Hotel. I think this must have been extended. There’s also a lot of street furniture filling the pavement.
