Norbiton, Surrey, St Peters Church 1914

Norbiton, Surrey, St Peters Church 1914. St Peters was built in the early 1840s by Sir Giles Scott. The posters by the gates of the now defunct Liverpool Arms pub are interesting. There is a detailed view of them below the Google Street View. The top one advertises a show called 'Can You Beat This?' at the Kingston Empire on Monday 28th September 1914. Postcard by W. H. Applebee. Click the pictures to enlarge them.

  1. the details in the adverts really make the postcard special, thanks for showing them zoomed in.

  2. I agree with Lisa B, the shot of the posters is somehow special. Seeing the old style fonts on reasonably fresh looking paper brings the past to life. Like I could jump right into it. The photos are always interesting, Howard.
