Bitterne Park Triangle - 1907

Triangle 1907

This amazing 'pre-clock' image of the Triangle was captured in September 1907!


It's taken from a postcard, and the photographer is situated at the place where the Sayers Memorial Clock was to be placed some years later. We're told that the shop was Knowling's [Post Office] and the Bitterne Park Hotel and roof of the church hall are visible.

Many thanks to John Avery for supplying this image: you can see more local images from times gone by over on the City of Southampton Society's Memory Lane page.

If you own any images of the Bitterne Park area, or have memories you'd like to share using the site, do let us know.
