Mom's 1953 Europe Road Trip: Errand Day

From Mom's Europe trip diary, in the "PLACES VISITED" section:
August 27, Thursday – Road between Bristol and Chichester [England]
After breakfast, drove to Southampton where we got rid of packages, made reservations for car on Ostend ferry for Saturday by long distance to London, and did a few other shopping chores.  Left S/hampton around 3:00 and drove on to Chichester where we got rooms in separate hotels because we were afraid situation might be worse along road.  I spent the night in a single that cost 25 shillings.* 
* According to the "HOTELS STOPPED AT" section of the trip diary, my mother spent this night at the Ship Hotel in Chichester, England. 

 No copyright friendly images available, so here is another map, of the approximate route from Dublin/Dún Laoghaire, Ireland, to Holyhead, Wales, to Chichester, England:

This is the twentieth in a series of posts about my mother's 1953 Europe Trip.
