Maybe bring the tram back and we’d not have the awful Xmas market up the high st.

“British Transport Films” were a staple of an evening out at The Pictures. Main feature film, the “B” Movie and if you were lucky a “British Transport Film” They were documentaries played out like a mini dramas, something warm and comforting watching them. This one is from 1950, about Sothampton Docks and the arrival of The Queen Mary…well worth a look.

The saddest part of these pictures is Southampton must have been a wonderful City in years gone by, the old station (both mainlines), the bargate, high st etc etc, now its a wankpit.

Just stole this off Southampton Heritage Photos FB page…great picture of the High Street supposedly late 1920s…

Did a little sharpening and adjusted the exposure.
