Banstead High Street

From the 1950s, the High Street is not all that much changed from this view but now the tree in the centre has gone (2010) and there are just a few more cars about!

Comments:
The shop with wares on the pavement is Banstead Corn Stores. I think the the last of the "old" shops from my schooldays to go from the High Street. The tree in the centre of the picture was a (European) Lime that stood outside Boots. Note how the High Street widened from where the photographer stood (for a small parade of shops not visible in the photograph).

Compare with photo picture #316 where High Street narrows again.

I believe the second shop down in the three-floor building was Hearn's the Butcher and just a few doors down there was a coffee bar that was very popular with the Young Conservatives on Saturday mornings before they went on to the Victoria! c.1956/7
