Street Fair.

A Memory of Amersham

I used to be so excited about the street fair every September. It ran the entire length of Old Amersham High Street. I still have a precious photo of me, along with two little monkeys, which was taken at the fair. Possibly in about 1961.
My parents were married at St Mary's church in 1940, the same year my grandfather died. He was buried in the churchyard. My grandmother is also buried there, as is my dear mother.
Does anyone remember the doctor's surgery at the bottom of Gore Hill? Also, the old bus garage, which was more or less opposite?
