Gosport High Street Past and Present

Gosport High St

131 High Street - Middle Street

I have a list of the occupiers of the addresses in Gosport’s High Street from I understand 1958. I am looking the put in a comparison for 2018. I hope I will be able to see how many have survived over last 60 year.

Some of the occupiers in the 1958  list may have just lived in the flats. I will try to sort  them out and remove them as I am more interested in the businesses. Ian Jeffery ian@gosport.info
