Banstead High Street in the 1950s ( Part two)

This shows Part Two of a postcard from the 1950s. ( See picture #368 for the left half of this postcard and picture #134 for another view).

The shop on the corner is Eastmans. What did they sell? Can you identify any other shops?

I am fairly certain that Eastmans was a dry cleaning shop. I will try to find more. Others have mentioned the Jewelers - I found B.A.Side Jewelers 34 High Street Banstead listed in 1957.

Hello David have just been talking to a friend of my Mum's and she also remembers it being a dry cleaning shop.

Thank you Christine. A couple more directory entries I may have missed;- Lillian Pearce Woollen Goods, 53 High Street from about 1952 until about 1963. Before this listed as 9 Buff Parade, High Street, from 1938 through WW2 until about 1945. The Wilmot Cafe 49 High Street in 1955. F C Collinson Hairdresser 59 High Street in 1954. Finally C Valdor Confectioners, 39 High Street from 1958 until 1970's. More to follow I hope.
