The Grand Naval Review, at Spithead: Excursionists on the Floating-Bridge at Portsmouth, 1856. Sightseers flock to see a display of Royal Navy ships off the Hampshire coast. 'Whilst the greater part of the crowds streamed away to Southsea Common, another took the direction of Gosport, and, covering the decks of the floating-bridge with its numbers, glided into the sandy level, interspersed with furze bushes and water, which forms the beach between Fort Monckton and Stokes Bay'. From "Illustrated London News", 1856.
