Photographer's Note

A view looking across Old Portsmouth towards the dockyard. The building in the distance is the Semaphore Tower a series of towers that linked Portsmouth Dockyard with London. In 1913 Semaphore Tower was destroyed by fire. It was rebuilt to it's present structure incorporating the resited Lion Gate, (one of the old entrances to the dockyard).
The two pubs at the end of the road are the 'Still and West' and the 'Spice Island Inn'.
Both pubs have great courtyards outside that leave you a few feet from huge ferries and warships as they enter the harbour.
Taken with the sun very low, just before dusk.
