Hersham Green, Surrey, c1910.

Hersham Green, Surrey, c1910. The Watermans Arms is still there, but the post office is no longer a post office. This postcard was originally published by Young & Co of Teddington, but this is a later reprint by W. H. Applebee. Click to enlarge.

The two postcards below show a view taken further back from the above card. First is the Young & Co original and below it is the later WHA reprint. Young took a few postcards of this area that feature this man. He bears a striking similarity to Mr Young himself. I think this may be a little bit of vanity by Mr Young, appearing in his own postcards. Sadly the pond no longer exists. On the right is the Fox and Goat pub (with the Cobham Brewery sign), now a travel agent. Click to enlarge.
