Surrey, Richmond, Hill Rise c1905 and c1913
Surrey, Richmond, Hill Rise circa 1905 and circa 1913. Here are a couple of postcards that show Hill Rise before all of the buildings on the left side of the street were demolished. It does make Hill Rise more open and airy, but it has lost some of its cluttered charm. Google Street View does not go up Hill Rise for some reason, so the 'now' pictures are ones I took a few days ago on my telephone as I was passing through. Postcards by LL and W. H. Applebee. The LL postcard is a little earlier than the WHA and was taken a little further up the hill. Click the pictures to enlarge. For more old photographs please visit Sepia Saturday.
