R. B. Southgate, Baker, Frimley, Surrey, c1911

This postcard shows the bakery of Richard Brown Southgate in Frimley, Surrey in about 1911. It seems likely that Mr Southgate is the man standing outside the shop. The shop is now part of the Frimley Childrens Centre and it looks set to be demolished soon as part of a big refurbishment. Photographer or publisher not credited on the postcard.
