: From established Southampton historian, Jim Brown's sequel to Southampton's Changing Faces looks once more at how the city has changed over the years, with before and after photos illustrating that change. More Southampton Changing Faces show how building developments, some dramatic have transformed areas of the city over the years. Local historian Jim Brown has had access to local collections containing a number of unpublished views and his modern photos taken from as nearly as possible the same position as the older pictures, sometimes reveal startling changes. The post-war reconstruction following Hitler's Blitzkrieg altered many areas beyind recognition. Further changes came in the 1950's with the construction of the new ring road and the resultant demolition of many properties. More changes occured in the 70's when the massive Itchen Bridge was built which involved the sweeping away of a number of buildings to provide the two approaches to the new bridges.
