PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 for ARTS, CULTURE & LIFESTYLE

Southsea in 1962

The Head Facebook Page the other day linked to this amazing cine film from 1962 shot around Southsea. This colour film really gives sense of the time and a sense of the summer too with loads of the old rides down on Clarence Pier, a real find.

    What a fabulous piece of film. I was 9 at the time and just loved that steam railway. A bit later on quite a few of my mates worked at the fair – I still fondly remember the Rotor Wheel. It’s certainly an age gone by…but still alive in my head!
