Abbots Hospital, Guildford circa 1900

What I love about this postcard is the advertisment for the removal company of Chaplin and Co.

A Present From Guildford....

This little treasure was purchased quite recently. It shows the landmarks those familiar with the area would expect. Guildford Castle, St Martha's, St. Catherine's and the famous High Street. The date on this piece is around 1920.

Chertsey Street Guildford 1915

Looking at Holy Trinity Church in the High Street, from the direction of Chertsey Street.

When I was growing up the building adjacent to the two ladies was Barclays Bank and Thorps bookshop was the building on the left hand side where the arch is.
