Maidenhead, Berkshire, King Street c1912

Maidenhead, Berkshire, King Street circa 1912. If you look carefully on the right-hand side of the postcard you can see the roof and gable of the Rose Hotel (mostly obscured by the premises of C. Grinsted, Fishmonger). The Rose Hotel (now just a pub) appears to be the only building in this postcard that has survived into the 21st century. Postcard by W. H. Applebee.

  1. That is a superb photocard! It is almost like a theatrical set where everyone is about to burst into song! The modern view is at least pedestrian, but no one is singing now.

  2. The the street views in the postcards are amazing. The advertising card is well worth seeing, Your cards are nearly always more interesting than what Google shows.
