This illustrated history portrays one of England's finest cities. It provides a nostalgic look at Portsmouth's past and highlights the special character of some of its most important historic sites. The photographs are taken from the unique Historic England Archive, the nation's record of 12 million photographs, drawings and publications, ranging from the 1850s and the earliest days of photography up to the present day and includes subjects such as churches and houses, historic buildings and modern architecture. Historic England: Portsmouth shows the city as it once was, from its streets and alleys to its illustrious dockyard, the oldest Royal Navy Dockyard in the country, and one which boasts one of the oldest dry docks in the world. Portsmouth has been functioning in a naval capacity since 1495 and few other places have such a prominent place in Britain's naval history. This books helps you discover this maritime city's long and distinguished past.
