Introduction
Portsmouth has a Royal Navy base and a great Historic Dockyard. The ceramic’s naval flags say, “60 Glorious Years God Bless You Ma’am”. The bicentennial of Charles Dickens’ birth is also in 2012, including at his authentically restored birthplace in old Portsmouth. This B&B from 1952 is likely to put up visitors to both attractions. Chefs Rosemary Hune and Constance Spry’s Coronation Chicken, created for The Queen’s Coronation, was called the first TV dinner as many bought their first set to watch that! It is still a popular dish.

 The model has features of these three terraced houses, dating from the late 1700s to early 1800s. In the middle 51 St Thomas’s Street, with its two shallow bow windows and frieze mouldings, is the model’s best fit. No 50 on the left has a triangular porch. No 52 on the right has a loft window with hipped roof.

 In this Coronation Chicken meat is under the curried cream sauce - rather than inside. Will the B&B serve it for the Diamond Jubilee?

Charles Dickens 1812-2012
Dickens was born in Portsmouth, where his father John was a clerk in the Royal Navy Pay Office. In Dickens’ novel David Copperfield, always hopeful Wilkins Micawber was based on John and both spent time in debtors’ prisons. In the Nicholas Nickleby novel, Nicholas and Smike walk down from London to Portsmouth to join the navy... Sharing lodgings with theatrical troupe owner Mr Crummles, he gives them work instead. They all live off mutton and onion sauce in St Thomas’s Street, the very same location of this building!
