Station Road - a Memory of Addlestone.
I couldn't believe when I came across this picture. In 1950 I was born just above the shop (the first blind on the left). The shop was Reliant Shoe Repairs owned by my late father Arthur Piggott who was very well known in Addlestone. The single story building next to it was Mrs Martins Cafe, and me and my brother Bernard had many a cup of tea there. We lived in Addlestone until the end of 1965 then moved to Farnborough Hampshire.
The family now live in many parts of the world now. My two sisters (Janet and Barbara) live in Canada, my younger brother Bernard emigrated to New Zealand (but now lives in The Philipines and sadly my parents and youngest brother have past away.
As for me, I live and work in Tbilisi, Georgia and apart from the odd Russian invasion is quite peaceful. Georgia in many ways is like England in the 1950's which I guess is why I like it here.
