Between 1840 and 1846 Ubsdell walked the length and breadth of Hampshire calling at the big houses and estates, looking for portraiture work. As a by-product he painted in watercolours the churches he passed on his way. There are over a hundred of these watercolours, virtually unseen for over a century. Ubsdell's great great great grandson Chris Brindle plotted the locations of all the churches and set out to discover Ubsdell's Hampshire. Where Ubsdell painted, Chris took photographs and researched the stories behind the people and places in the pictures. The result is the two volumes of 'Hampshire: Discovering the 19th Century World of Portsmouth Artist R.H.C. Ubsdell': Volume 1: Portsmouth & South Hampshire Volume 2: Southampton & North Hampshire In this second volume Chris discusses the families of Southampton and Northern Hampshire, their churches and their houses, the Barker Mills (Millbrook), the Nightingales (East Wellow), the Goldsmids Cookes and Dalgetys (East Tytherley), the Nortons Rotherfields and Scotts (East Tisted), the Portals (Whitchurch), the Austens (Church Oakley):- (the churches illustrated on the cover) and many other people and places including the history of Southampton and the story of how it lost its seaside. Portsmouth Museums staged an exhibition of Ubsdell's work from May 26th to November 30th 2012.

Hampshire Sheet 65.10 Southampton (West) 1908 - published 2007; intro by Alan Godfrey. Few areas have changed more comprehensively than this highly detailed map, for in 1908 the tide still came up to the western shore, and almost up to the station. This land was infilled as part of the Western Docks project between 1927 and 1934. Our map shows the area from French Street northward to Polygon Road, and westward to Waterloo Road. Though much of the map was therefore mud and sand in 1908 - with several creeks, there is still much of interest, features including Bugle Street, St Michael's church, Western Esplanade, Corporation Baths, West Quay, Lansdowne Hill, Polygon, West Marlands (before the Civic Centre was built), West Park, Thorners Charity, Southampton West station, Fourposts, Blechynden.

The high quality of printing and the material used sets these prints apart. They are difficult to distinguish from the originals as they retain so much of the feel and delicacy of watercolour. The artists themselves are very involved in the printing process. They work with a talented craftsman who has developed a way of printing on real watercolour paper. This paper is produced especially for them by an English mill. It is made from 100% cotton and is completely acid free. The pricture is supplied mounted and framed. Frame dimensions 340x300mm. Image size : 175x140mm

Advantages: How bike shops should be Disadvantages: Located in an anonymous, and somewhat delapidated place
...Set in the somewhat decaying facade that is Portswood, Southampton, Portswood Cycles represents a dying breed of cycle shops. It is all too easy to overlook such a place when retailers such as Halfords have made such ruthless attempts to dominate the leisure cycling market. Many local bike shops found it near-impossible to cope with the pressures of competition from such large-scale companies...
