1. Portsmouth Part 3 – Harlots, Dung and Glory - 1850 to 1930
Talk by Andrew Negus

Start the New Year off with Part 3 of our popular series on Portsmouth. This time find out why the dockyard triples in size, why the dung disappears, and how corsets cut down on the prostitution! There are new hospitals, hotels and theatres and WWI brings glory and death to the town, which is then honoured as a City with a bishop. Sadly there will still be slums and an awful murder.

Talk by Andrew Negus

The final part of the series on Portsmouth brings us up to the present day, covering what is probably the period of most change. Through the dark days war, the Blitz and the special contribution that Portsmouth made towards eventual victory. Post war, tracing the radical transformation of the city, which creates changes to its employment, its appearance and its very identity. The city today is still the home of the Royal Navy but with it is an important commercial port, and its heroic past ensures Portsmouth keeps its place as a leading south coast city.
