A garage sign that says "garage" (helpful) can't make out the names on the buildings in the courtyard

There were lots of pubs along East Street, Farnham. The sites of the Royal Oak, Seven Stars, Swan, White Hart, Eagle, Surrey Arms and Duke of Cambridge can be seen here.

Is there still any doubt at all on the identification of this? It is definitely East Street heading east towards Hale Road and Guildford Road. Ian notes Farnham Park in the upper left corner. The gas works (no longer there) and St James church (also no longer there) and the Albion pub make it sure. The large open area to the top right was a nursery. The coachworks on the corner of East Street and St Cross is where George Sturt (the author of 'The Wheelwright's Shop' plied his trade. It is now a garage.

It is comparable with many photographs that we hold in the Museum of Farnham.

I agree with Ramblinjohn. This is a photo of Farnham, looking Eastward along East Street.

This is Farnham to the NE of image EPW022735. It was taken the same month and was probably taken on the same flight. The white square PH near the top seems to be The Albion, still there although remodelled, at the junction of East St, Hale Road B3007, and Guildford Road A325. The church now seems to be St James' Court apartments alongside East St, with the distinctive small square house just to the NE east still there beyond the modern Farthingfield House. Just to the north of St James, the Stoke Hills road and houses also match the aerial photo. There is a distinctive house on the corner of St Cross Rd and Thorold Rd, which I suggest makes the identification certain.

Comparing with a Francis Frith 1904 photo, this certainly looks like St James Church.

Dear all,



Thanks for your comments so far. This is a tricky one and unfortunately I have been unable to make the Scarborough suggestion work, nothing in the image seems to match the historical mapping for the town. The original Aerofilms Ltd Register entry says "not located - In Berks". Do you have any other ideas where this might be?
