英国朴茨茅斯:咸与现代

Portsmouth, England: Salty and Modern

繁忙的朴茨茅斯港口
A major city on England’s south coast
是英格兰南部沿海地区的一座主要城市
is the busy port of Portsmouth —
这里一直是皇家海军的驻扎地
long the home of the Royal Navy.
几个世纪以来 海事霸主英国
For centuries, Britain, a maritime superpower,
靠着这里的舰队 稳固并扩大帝国版图
relied on the fleets based here to maintain and expand its vast empire.
身为明显的军事目标
As an obvious military target,
朴茨茅斯几乎被二战的炮弹夷为平地
Portsmouth was nearly flattened by World War II bombs,
但自1945年起得以重建
but has been rebuilt since 1945.
只有大教堂得以幸存
Its cathedral survived only
因为纳粹用它当做操纵炮弹的塔台
because the Nazis used it as a beaconto help guide their bombs.
因战后匆忙草率毫无规划的建设
With post-war construction hasty and poorly planned,
这座城市因其建筑差劲而声名狼藉
the city became infamous for its bad architecture.
但其正在经历的乡绅化进程令人印象深刻
But an impressive gentrification is under way.
随着海军的缩减和旅游业的增长
As the Navy shrinks and tourism grows,
朴茨茅斯正享受着新生活
Portsmouth is enjoying new life.
帆状塔下
Underneath a sail-like tower,
原先的沙地工业滨水区已被改造
its formerly gritty industrial waterfronthas been transformed
成了重要的餐饮购物建筑群
into a vital shopping and restaurant complex.
曾经强大的防护垒壁现在是公园式的滨海步行大道
The once-formidable ramparts are now a park-like promenade
沿途排列着历史名胜古迹
lined with historic points of interest,
通常都被那些只是享受清爽散步的人忽略了
mostly ignored by those simply enjoying a refreshing stroll.
出了名的狂风天气
With the notoriously blustery weather,
会使当地的孩子聚集在墙脚
local kids gather at the base of the wall.
这些墙诨名暖墙 位于背风处
Nicknamed the”Hot Walls,” it’s out of the wind
留住了英国不靠谱的太阳的温暖
and retains warmth from the unreliable English sun.
在防护垒壁的尽头
At the tip of the ramparts,
从前的咸味老酒馆现在不仅招待着水手也服务着时尚人群
formerly salty old pubs now serve not sailors but a trendy crowd.
他们的对话不时被通过的大型船只
Their conversation is punctuated by the passage of massive ships and ferries
和巧妙穿过狭窄港口的渡轮打断
artfully powering through the narrow mouth of the harbor.
