Portsmouth Transport from Old Photographs

Availability: In stock

In the 1940s, Doris Day had a No. 1 hit record with Sentimental Journey. This would indeed be an apt alternative title for this book, for within its pages the reader will be taken on a sentimental journey back to the days when the residents of Portsmouth could board a steam train, glide through the streets on an electric tram or trolleybus, sail to the Isle of Wight on a paddle steamer, take a charabanc ride into the country, fly across to the Island and back for 6s and 8d, or perhaps enjoy riding on much quieter roads on a two-wheeled bicycle or motorbike. All of the above forms of nostalgic travel, and more, are affectionately remembered by well-known local historian and author Ron Brown, who has compiled over 230 photographs to illustrate this popular subject. So, kindly take your seats for a trip back into the past. HOLD VERY TIGHTLY PLEASE!
