579 – An incomplete Project

This is the old British Telecom Telephone Exchange building. It is the last building on the southern side at the western end of Stokes Road. That is its only significance in the incomplete project.

Around 2010 I became involved in a project in Cambridgeshire called the Cambridge Community Archive Network (CCAN). The project is intended to capture the history and the current activities around the county. I made it my role in the project to catalogue the changes to the shop fronts along the high street, so I baselined the project by photographing the shop fronts along the high street, and then when either I had noticed that a shop was changing role or ownership I would take a picture and upload it. The project is still running, and my pictures from 2010 are still there, here’s a link; https://www.ccan.co.uk We moved to Gosport.

I had enjoyed working with CCAN, and when I arrived at Gosport I wanted to do the same thing, except Hampshire doesn’t appear to have the equivalent project, or the same software. Not to worry I thought, I’ll go ahead and do something. So, I went out and took pictures of all of the shop fronts on both the north and south side. So, I have a set of street front pictures from 2017, but I haven’t followed up on monitoring changes. What’s brought all this up?

It’s the book of the moment, The Book of Gosport. The section I was reading dealt with Gosport High Street and Stokes Road, I quite like the pictures in the book and the details that they give. The book was published in 2005, I thought it would be quite interesting to do a set of pictures of all of the shops and buildings they mention in the book. I know this is another project to add to many that I have discussed on this blog, but I could actually do this. I will put some time aside for this.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
