Mr Monkey in Portsmouth, 29th August

"It wasn't all those things at the same time, of course"

Sitting on top of the Round Tower, Mr Monkey looked along the seafront into Portsmouth to look at Quebec House. It was built by public subscription in 1754 as a bathing house, and used water from the harbour. Mr Monkey left the Round Tower and set off to Southsea, passing the Square Tower. Originally one of Henry VIII's gun platforms it was later used as the governor's residence, a powder magazine, a meat and water store and a semaphore signalling station.
