Old postcards from the early 20th century, compared to the same view shown on Google Street View today. The postcards come from my own collection. Almost all of them are from England, mainly showing West London, Middlesex, Surrey, Berks and Bucks. Click on the postcards to see enlarged versions. Street View images are the copyright of Google.

Thursley, Surrey, The Post Office c1912
Thursley, Surrey, The Post Office circa 1912. Thursley is a small village in Surrey. The view has changed very little, although Thursley no longer has a post office. The post office was run by Henry Spernon Tozer, a very fine artist. He was also a photographer and postcard publisher, it is possible that he took this photograph and had it printed by W. H. Applebee. This card is clearly published by W. H. Applebee, but a printed version exists which states it was published by Tozer. Click to enlarge.
