Five adjacent pubs in Portsmouth, Hampshire

Portsmouth was a town of many wonders in 1911. One of them was the possession of five fully licensed houses standing next to each other. They faced the Harbour so that the hardy sailor did not have far to look for refreshment on landing. From left to right: the Queens Head, The Old London, The King & Queen, The Ship Anson, and the Victoria & Albert.

EDITORS COMMENTS
Step back in time to the bustling coastal town of Portsmouth, Hampshire in 1911. This photograph showcases five fully licensed pubs standing proudly next to each other, each with its unique character and welcoming facade. The terraced row of pubs, known as the Queen's Head, The Old London, The King & Queen, The Ship Anson, and the Victoria & Albert, faced the Harbour, making it an ideal stop for the hardy sailor upon landing. The Queens Head, with its pale brick exterior and ornate sign, was a popular choice for those seeking a refreshing pint of ale or porter. The Old London, with its dark, aged appearance, exuded a sense of history and tradition. The King & Queen, boasting a grand, red-brick frontage, was a beacon of warmth and hospitality. The Ship Anson, with its nautical theme and black-and-white sign, paid homage to the town's rich maritime history. Lastly, the Victoria & Albert, with its long, terraced design, offered a spacious and inviting atmosphere for weary travelers. These pubs, located in the heart of Portsmouth, were more than just places to quench one's thirst. They were community hubs, gathering places for locals and visitors alike. The pubs' proximity to the harbour made them an essential part of the town's coastal landscape, providing a much-needed respite for sailors and travelers alike. This photograph, taken in 1911, is a testament to the charm and character of Portsmouth during that era. It invites us to imagine the lively conversations, the clinking of glasses, and the camaraderie that once filled these historic pubs.
