The French, 190 Albert Road, Southsea, City ofPortsmouth, 2016 • Brightly shuttered ex-bakery with what looks like an original 1930s sign, possibly dating from the legend that reads: “Prop R.S. & H.R. Brooming Family Baker Est.1937”. The premises closed down in 2007 – there’s info here and here. Apparently it once housed a restaurant and tearooms, and there was recently a campaign to reopen it with jazz music and tea dances, but the website has since been taken down.
