Court Road, Banstead - and a speedy delivery!

A 1908 postcard view of Court Road in Banstead, taken (I believe) from the Holly Lane end looking towards Avenue Road.

The postcard is addressed to a correspondent in Dresden, Germany, and note the postmarks – posted in Epsom at 4pm on August 6th; received in Dresden two days later on the 8th! That was years before an Air Mail service was introduced, and even with all our present-day technology, who'd put money on such a speedy delivery today?!
