Havant from the air, 1928

Having recently discovered Britain from Above as a resource, we’d encourage you to take the link and take a look.

To whet your appetite, here’s a photograph of Havant, taken from the air in 1928, which shows the town as it was a little over ninety years ago.

The main road running from south to north through the photograph is, of course, South Street, running into North Street which carries on north over a long gone level crossing into what is now Leigh Road. At the right hand top corner, New Lane is simply that, a narrow lane heading past the New Lane cemetery which was then on the outskirts of the town.
