England 1938 Shere, Albert Weller 9-031

Signs for Albert Weller, Coal Merchant and Cars for Hire, W. King Bakery delivery wagon and another sign that sps1955 identified as the "Lavender Lane Tea Room". The building on the right with the pointed roof is the Fire House. Please see the comments below to see a modern photo of the firehouse.

American's vacation in England in the 1930s preserved on 25 rolls of black and white negative 35mm film (about 600 photos). Each film roll was marked with a location name. Example: Photo 6-010 is film roll 6 (Blewbury), the 10th photo on the film. The photos were probably all taken within two weeks of each other. I am not familiar with any of these locations. Here is a list of the film rolls that were uploaded and how they were labeled:

I hope that some of these photos are of historic value to someone and not just a bunch of tourist pictures.
