YESTERDAY'S Archive Pic of the Day showed the Civic Centre in all it's glory, while today's image shows it under construction.

Pictured here in the 1930s, the Civic Centre is beginning to take shape against the backdrop of Southampton Power Station.

The 183ft clock tower had made its appearance on the skyline and was quickly nicknamed Kimber’s Chimney by local people after the then mayor, Sydney Kimber.
