Toy Shop - a Memory of Banstead.

We came to Banstead from New Zealand and my parents bought 2 shops in High Street, the toy shop down one end which had some nursery things in it also, and the nursery shop up the middle of town. I was so blessed to see this photo as we are now living in Australia and trying to do a family tree book. This photo was just a wonderful find. I loved living in Banstead, it has always been a lovely memory of my youth. I was 13 years old at the time. My brother and sister went to Banstead Primary and I went to Nork Park. My name then was Corinne Stubbins. It would be great to catch up with anyone who remembers the shops or us...

Where abouts was your parent's toyshop (which shops was it next to). I have a vague memory of another toyshop.

The main one I remember was "Toys and Games" next to the CoE church, run by Mr Lowry.
