Published by the S. & W. Series of postcards circa 1910. This is a view that my ancestors who most certainly have seen as they walked this area. My Great Grandfather, Charles Butcher was born in Wonersh in 1869.

There was something familiar with this postcard. Recollections of visiting the lido through my childhood and sitting at the tables outside, with the ever so faintly mottled and dotted patten in a pale blue colour.

There is something about this scene that I can resonate with. Not that I was born in 1929!
My Grandmother who was 17 years old at the time would have seen this of the High Street. Yet, there is parts of the picture that I recognise, names of the shops - Timothy White Cash Chemists for example were in the same location when I was growing, of course Timothy White's vanished from our streets long ago and merged into Boots. The clock that sits proudly over the High Street and the Bulls Head, a familiar spot in my senior school days (all perfectly legal!).
