Leatherhead, Surrey, The Crescent c1913

Leatherhead, Surrey, The Crescent circa 1913. The unusual building on the right has survived, but the rest of the scene is not so pretty today. Note the milk cart and the stylish streetlamp. The back of the postcard describes the markings on the front. Postcard by W. H. Applebee. Click to enlarge.

  1. The card looks better than the modern view. We used to get milk delivered from a milk churn like that. Before the war my eldest brother got his backside tanned for filling one up with stones while the farmer was delivering.
