In the picture of the four shops at Copthorne bank the last on the left was, until recently a Branck of Lloyds Bank. But during the long sweaty summer of 1959 it was a grocer's shop. The shop next door was a newsagents shop (owned for a long time by a chap named Hewitt). Last time I stayed above the last shop on the left was the summer of 1960.
You could travel from West London to Crawley (in 1959) on a Green Line Bus for just under 4 Shillings.
Memory is so short.
