Ashford, Surrey, The Fire Station and Royal Hart pub c1912 and c1924. The fire station was in use from 1905 to 1947. It is now the premises of a glass company. The Royal Hart pub is still there, but it is closed for business. Postcards by W. H. Applebee of Ashford. The later postcard, number 5287, was published in about 1924 by Applebee's widow, Lucy.

  1. It looks as if the sign with the hart on it is still there n the Google photo. I tried to magnify it to get a closer look, but maybe they've blurred it on purpose.
