19. A horse-drawn carriage proceeds along the High Street on a J.B. Loek postcard published in about 1905. The Bull public house is on the left and opposite, behind the wall, is Detillens House. Beyond the horse, the house with the three tiled gables is Miles House, which was built in about 1400 and was for much of its existence a butcher's shop.

20. The new post office is now a private residence called Berry House, but when it was opened in 1911 on the site of an old stable, the local paper commented: 'It may somewhat appease the wrath of the antiquaries who were angered at the demolition of the old building which occupied this site to know that all the old timbers it was possible to use have been used in the new structure. '

21. This Belgian-printed postcard in the S. & W. Series is exquisitely coloured and shows the peacefulness of Limpsfield High Street in about 1907. Three ladies walk unconcernedly in the middle of the road by The Bull public house. The building on the right is The OldLodge.

22. Frith's of Reigate produced this postcard for e.M. Webster in 1924 and it shows Webster's shop-front which has now been replaced by a window in a private house called Gallets. Opposite is The Old Lodge, which was originally a Iodge to Hookwood Park before serving for a time as an extension of Manor House School. Today it is a restaurant.

23. CiM. Webster published th is view of the High Street in about 1912 and her shop can be seen on the left. The horse-drawn delivery van is engaged in delivering the milk and behind it on the right is The Bull and Vine Cottage. Some early advertising can be seen by Miss Webster's shop for R. White's lemonade and Taddy's tobacco.

24. This Edwardian postcard was sent to Canterbury from New Oxted in 1911 and shows a busy Limpsfield High Street with the Old Lodge on the right. Horse-drawn vehicles and a bicycle are in evidence and the gentleman in shirtsleeves is sporting gaiters and a straw hat. The house on the left is Keelers, which was originaJly two mid-nineteenth century cottages.

25. A youth with his bicycle paus es outside Brasier's, the feneed building on the right of the picture, in Miss Webster's postcard of about 1912. The house is now known as Tyrrels and Ebbutts and dates from the sixteenth century. In the photograph, J. Brasier advertises 'Builders and Undertakers', but in 1974 this old Limpsfield family left the locality after several centuries because of the High Street traffic.

26. M. Smethurst, stationer, Limpsfield, published this delightful view of the High Street in about 1930. The open-top motor ear is parked outside H.E. Smith's shop (eleetrieal and radio engineers) and beyond is F.A. Potter's baker's shop, whieh is now the Limpsfield Bakery. Beyond the bakery ean be seen Loveland Cottage (e 1700) and The White House (e 1780).

High Streel, Limpsfield.

27. R.T.M. published this view of the High Street in the 1920s although there is still no evidence of the motor car. The shop on the right was The Stores or Wiekharn's and the business was established in 1834. An advertisement in 1910 described Wickham's as 'Family Grocers & Provision Merchants, Importers, Bonders & Bottlers of Wines, Spirits & Beers, Drapers, Outfitters & General House Furnishers'. It is now Davison's wine stores.

28. The High Street takes on a more familiar view in this 1939 postcard which shows several motor vehicles, the nearest of which is H.E. King's baker's van. The shop on the right is now a private house called Blue Goblin Cottage, but in the above view it advertises Lyons tea, Woodbine cigarettes, R. White's ginger beer & lemonade, Nut Brown tobacco and Wall'sicecream.
