Maurice writes (November 2010) :
" Here's a picture that the Johannians amongst us may appreciate: Southsea Common, though seen from the ferry, not the grass. We used to walk around there at lunchtimes, perhaps round the castle at the far right in the picture, where rushing between waves was a sport on windy days, one which left a few of us with wet feet for the afternoon!"
Robbie Dempsey writes (November 2010)
I often recall walking around the sea front at lunch times. I regularly called to look in the window of a small music shop. They advertised the latest offerings from Bob Dylan - or whoever was top of the pops that month.
The last time I was on that sea front was 2002 and we visted a wonderful museum dedicated to the Normandy Landings. "
