Arthur Anscombe's shop in Handcross

There is not much going on in Handcross High Street with just one car, one horse and cart, and a couple of bicycles to disturb the peaceful scene.
The single-story building just right of centre was later demolished to provide the entrance to Windmill Platt.
Arthur Anscombe ran a boot and shoe repair business at the shop on the right, which later became the location for “Devonshire Dairy” operated by Mr Les Moore.
At that time Mr Anscombe was assisted by Mr Tom Leppard who later ran the business a few doors up the street at “Kimberley”. Some years later Mr Leppard was joined in the business by his son, Reg.
