Helen Mabel Smith's Collection of Old Photos From Across Portsmouth

Published: 27th February 2014 19:52

The following photos are from the slide collection of Helen Mabel Smith (1906-1990) who was a former Headmistress of Paulsgrove East Infant School. Miss Smith taught in Portsmouth for forty years and was previously headmistress at Albert Road Junior School in Cosham.

They were kindly passed to us by Ernest Dunn who was given them a few years ago, saving them from being scrapped at the tip.
