Guildford High Street circa 1929

There is something about this scene that I can resonate with. Not that I was born in 1929!

My Grandmother who was 17 years old at the time would have seen this of the High Street. Yet, there is parts of the picture that I recognise, names of the shops – Timothy White Cash Chemists for example were in the same location when I was growing, of course Timothy White’s vanished from our streets long ago and merged into Boots. The clock that sits proudly over the High Street and the Bulls Head, a familiar spot in my senior school days (all perfectly legal!).
