Hayes, Middlesex, Station Road, c1913

Hayes, Middlesex, Station Road, c1913. In this postcard by W. H. Applebee you can clearly see his three-wheeled car, an A. C. Sociable that appeared in many of his postcards (also see these posts on this blog here, here and here). This postcards is one of my favourites from my collection. It gives the town of Hayes a 'wild-west' feel. Notice the girl walking down the street and the men sitting in the garden of the cafe on the right staring at her (or perhaps they are staring at the photographer)?
Click the postcard to enlarge.
Have a look at this week's Sepia Saturday blog - it features a similar three-wheeled vehicle.

Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, The Lighthouse 1913

Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, The Lighthouse 1913. Unfortunately it is not possible to get exactly the same viewpoint on Google Street View as the one in this postcard. The photographer, William Applebee of Ashford, Middlesex, visited Sussex in 1913 accompanied by his wife and took some photographs of Sussex views including Worthing, Littlehampton, Shoreham and surrounding areas. Shoreham Lighthouse, built in 1846 is largely unchanged. Click the photo to enlarge.
For more old photos have a look at this week's Sepia Saturday blog.
