Our regular location spotters, the Baileys and Bernard Parke, had little trouble correctly naming the Drummond Arms in Woodbridge Road, Guildford, and the White Hart in Wood Street Village, as the pubs seen in the previous post.
Name the street and perhaps suggest who these young men were.

And Christine Coleman emailed to say that the angel statue, pictured two weeks ago (Locations 22), is just along from Booker’s Tower in the old part of The Mount Cemetery, Guildford. Thanks for that.

This time, can you name the location of the above photo (in Guildford town centre) that was published as a postcard in the early 1900s? Also, any information or suggestions as to who the young men in uniform were. Perhaps they were army cadets?

What was this Guildford building seen behind the trees?

The second picture (above) is cropped from another picture postcard, also pre-First World War. Name the building that can be seen beyond the trees with its chimney and skylights on the roof. Any memories of it would be appreciated as I am planning a story about it for this website.

Please leave a reply using the box below – answers next week.

    First picture is top of North Street, the Fire Station sign is on the corner of Ward Street.

    Second picture is from the Castle Grounds looking towards the old Public Baths/Indoor Swimming Pool

  2. Bernard Parke says:

    1) Outside what is now the library in North Street. The old manufactory is in the background.

    2) This is the old indoor baths seen from the Castle Grounds.

    In The fifties they decided to open the swimming baths during the winter.

    There were also baths to wash in as many houses did not have proper bathrooms.

    I went swimming there with a school party in those days.
