The 1950s was a time of regeneration and change for Portsmouth. For children growing up during this decade, life was changing fast. They still made their own toys and earned their own pocket, but, on new television sets, Andy Pandy and Bill and Ben delighted them. With rationing discontinued, confectionary was on the menu again, and, for children, Portsmouth life in the 1950s was sweet. There was no money for holidays, but a short bus ride or long walk into Southsea with a pack of sandwiches, a flask of tea, and some fruit meant a long day on the beach. There were several cinemas, local shops to visit, and parks to play in. If you remember this, then you'll love revisiting the Portsmouth of the 1950s!
