Comments:
I worked in the Mint public house during the early 1970s, the landlord was Bob Shone and it looked very much then as it looks in the photo. A great pub with a good, regular clientelle, some of whom lived in the cottages shown to the right of the pub. Happy days!!

Not only is this an interesting photograph, but so, too, is the 'signature' - "W.T. Brown The Stationer Banstead". I wonder if Mr Brown actually published this (and presumably other postcards/photographs)- and whereabouts in Banstead his emporium was based?

Note from LNW: Peter, I do have several cards in my collection published by Brown but at this time I don't know where he was based. Interestingly, many English postcards were actually printed in Germany!
