Coronation - High Street, Handcross

Here is another picture of Handcross celebrating the coronation of King George VI. I wonder if anyone else has photographs of the event to upload to the website. I like the “Hovis for Tea” sign outside Jackman’s bakery, with “The Rule of the Road” in small writing beneath. Cue New World Symphony. I were a lad and had dripping on Hovis for tea.

I was excited to find another photograph showing one of the early telephone kiosks located in the front garden of No. 3, Rose Cottage in Handcross High Street.
It can be seen just to the right of the telegraph post on the right hand side of the road.
It is painted cream and named as a Kiosk No.1, but more commonly called a K1.
A better picture of the kiosk and more information can be found at picture #1737.
Select Open Document to see two close up photographs. The first shows a Morris Eight Tourer on the left and the K1 on the right.
In the second photograph, on the left is the shop of E. S. Hibbs and Son, followed by the newsagents.
