1950s View Of Portsmouth Harbour Taken From Gosport, England
A 1950s black and white postcard with a view of Portsmouth Harbour, Hampshire, England taken from Gosport.
The mouth of the harbour provides access to the Solent. It is best known as the home of the Royal Navy, HMNB Portsmouth. Because of its strategic location on the south coast of England, protected by the natural defence of the Isle of Wight, it has since the Middle Ages been the home to England's (and later Britain's) navy.
