Thanks to Hugh Sinclair of Southwood Road, Rusthall - a long-time resident - for the copy of the wonderful picture (left) of his road some time early-ish in the last century. Click on the thumbnail for an enlargement
and more about it. If anyone can add to the information we have, particularly concerning the mysterious 'milk churn', please write in. Hugh also sent the picture on the right of the long-vanished Marquee pub in the equally vanished Salisbury Road, which ran next to Gladstone Road off the High Street. Any other old photos will also be welcome. Click on the thumbnails for enlargements.
Also from Hugh comes the great view on the left of Rusthall High Street before most of the building was done, looking down it from the Langton end from round about where The Oak is now.
For the picture on the right we owe thanks to Pete Hawkins. It shows the Coach Road that was once the main road through this part of the Weald, with the White Hart pub on the right, just beyond the shop awning. The Victorian building on the left with the little tower room was once home to what is now the Rusthall Medical Centre in Nellington Lane.
