Cheerio Cafe, Pease Pottage

The Pease Pottage post office moved from its position opposite the Black Swan to Tilgate Forest Row in about 1925, and the Cheerio Café occupied the building for many years thereafter. The bus timetable on the wall outside indicates that this was the bus stop on the A23. According to the sign in the window on the left, luncheons and teas are served and other signage promotes Wills Woodbines and Lyons ice cream. Yummy!

My Dad painted the Cheerio Cafe signs in 1947 or 1948. He was always keen to include the acute accent over the E in Café. This is the only photo of his work I have found.
Thanks to Barry Ray for the 1950 photo date.
