582 – Stokes Road

Just bear with me on this one. This is a picture of Rowlands Pharmacy taken in May 2017, it’s one of over a hundred pictures that I took of the shops in Stokes Road, as I was starting to get on with my project of mapping the history of change in the street. Here’s the same pharmacy today;

As it happens, I didn’t take exactly the same picture as 2017, but enough that you can see that the frontage of Rowlands has changed significantly. Now, I can say that Gosport Best Kebab is present both today, and 2017, as is the unit to the right of GBK. Here’s the picture of that from 2017;

It doesn’t look like the curtains have changed. It does make me wonder happens about the rates for places like this.

Moving on to a slightly wider piece; reading the Book of Gosport, and looking at these pictures has made me think that perhaps I need to take another sequence of pictures, but this time perhaps include the whole building – especially if it is an interesting one – also I want to get it as close to the Book of Gosport as I can, which should be possible.

The good I have realised is that I don’t have to do this all in one go, I take pictures of a few shops at a time whilst I am out on my morning walk, seeing as I walk down Stokes Road most mornings, so over a few days I can capture everything. And make a not of changes. I will go back over that part of the Book of Gosport, and where they talk about specific shops or buildings I may go in and speak to them and ask them if I can write a piece about them – I’m not nervous about doing that, I’ll take the book with me. Should be fun!

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.
