Portsmouth Yesterday & Today
Portsmouth Yesterday & Today
  • Description

We are living in a time of change, and nothing alters so much as the streets and buildings around us. In a city such as Portsmouth the ravages of the war radically changed the landscape as huge areas of once-familiar buildings were destroyed. The reconstruction of Portsmouth saw new modern buildings rising from the ashes of the blitz, and in later years, as more cars entered the city and congestion became a problem, roads were constructed bringing with them more changes to the landscape.

This evocative book by local author Anthony Triggs illustrates many of those changes with a series of images from the past which have been paired with modern photographs taken from the same viewpoints. The historic pictures date from 1870 to 1970, and together with their modern counterparts serve to show how a century of change has affected the great city of Portsmouth.

AnthonyTriggs is the author of 14 previous books on the history of the Portsmouth area, including Sunny Southsea and Portsmouth: the Shattered City for Halsgrove. He is a retired journalist and lives at Portchester with his wife Sue.
