Have your say

Brian McCreadie wrote to me from Havant recalling a sweet shop called Old Jack’s in Charlotte Street, Portsmouth.

It was where he met his late wife Christina who worked there. He thinks the year was 1958.

Brian wonders if readers might have pictures or information about the shop. If you do, please get in touch via the addresses on these pages.

Meanwhile, here’s a picture from 1975 showing the Charlotte Street market in its bustling prime.
