Faversham, Kent, Ospringe Road c1908

Faversham, Kent, Ospringe Road circa 1908. On the left of this first postcard, by Arthur Filmer of Faversham, we can see the Faversham Arms, now a private house. The house has retained the pub's etched glass windows. The pub was tied to Rigdens brewery. Shepherd Neame is now the last remaining brewer in Faversham. The second postcard, a coloured view by Miltons of London E.C., shows a close-up of the pub. The final postcard, in the Bells Series, shows the road from the bottom of the hill looking up. This postcard is a little later, circa 1920.

  1. How interesting! The last card makes me wonder if wayward cars don't occasionally make a surprise entry into living rooms on Ospringe Road.
