A photograph of High Road, Laindon which I haven’t seen before. I’m not sure which year it was taken, but a clue lies in the fact that the curbs were added to the road in 1929.
Loved seeing the old petrol pumps at Toomey’s and the advertisement for Robin Starch on the side of the building. I think I can see a weighing machine outside the chemist shop a few doors along.
I think that must be Aston Road between the garage and the first building, I can see a sign on the wall, but can’t quite make it out. I could sit and study old photos like this for hours as there’s so many little details.
