Nothing changes – two lads perch precariously on the concrete supports beneath Portsbridge, Hilsea, Portsmouth, in this picture thought to be from the 1920s.
Today’s bridge is also a big attraction for local lads who use it to jump into the water during fine weather.
On the bridge, which crosses Portscreek, and nearest the camera, a man and a woman are in a horse-drawn vehicle and appear to be tickling the animal with the whip.
A trolley bus looks as though it’s heading north towards Cosham bearing an advertisement for Handleys department store, Southsea.
Both these pictures come from Paul Costen (costen.co.uk) and the second looks as though it might be a tranquil scene from Midsomer Murders.
The bridge is on the A3 London Road at Purbrook and here we’re looking north with just a couple of cars and a delivery van on the road.
