This picture is later than 1960, although difficult to say when and maybe not by much. There are two Austin/Morris 1100s which were produced 1962 onwards. AE Pull still had premises next to the Victoria in Banstead in 1960 and I think moved here about 1963/64.

I lived at 27a Nork Way during ww2. Moved to Tattenham Corner approx '51. Was living there when a V2 bomb landed on workshops at rear 27A badly damaged

My first ever memory is whilst living at 27a my mother carrying me down the stairs to go to the shelter in the rear of the property and see the sky towards London red from the flames of what was the first day of the blitz. There after I slept in a shelter nearly every night normally at the off licence with the Casemores in those days. Across the road was the common stretching to Banstead station. I can remember two or three goats grazing there during this period.

Hillman Hunter was first available in 1966

Note from LNW: Thanks Simon, I have updated the year to 1967. Just for those of us not familiar with the model, which car is the Hillman Hunter?

The Hillman Hunter is the second car parked in the street, between the Triumph Herald convertible and the Mini. A lady is just about to cross the road in front of it.

Interesting to note that on the right hand of the photo tines of a hay tedder are visible, no doubt mounted on the back of a tractor.

Behind the shops was a motor cycle repair workshop. I think access was between shops or through a shop - I can't remember details. Was it where the car is on the pavement? I'm fairly certain there wasn't access to it through the archway that led to Alfred Pull's and builder's. Two brothers used to be in the builder's office and at times they had fierce arguments.

Just behind the camera was a garage. Is it still there?
