New Malden, Surrey, Coombe Road and Royal Oak c1908

New Malden, Surrey, Coombe Road and Royal Oak c1908. Postcard by Young & Co of Teddington. Young would have been very familiar with this area, his wife Annie was living in nearby Lime Grove before they married in 1902 at the local Wesleyan Methodist church. The Royal Oak pub looks surprisingly similar, but the in the surrounding area only the distant trees show any trace of the semi-rural idyll suggested by the postcard.

  1. Do you still have this card as I would be interested in the wording on the reverse regarding the cross marked on the front?

    1. Hello Julian, I have added a scan of the back of the postcard. I hope this is useful.
