Sandhurst Shops - a Memory of Sandhurst.

Seeing the picture from Sandhurst Halt brings back good memories of my youth in the 60's. The shop in the centre was the newsagents where we would exchange R. Whites and Coronal bottles found on the building sites for sweets and fags! The small garage just past the newsagents was Thompsons, he sold air rifle pellets. Sandhurst Halt station was a wooden structure with a ticket office and waiting room which had a fantastic coal stove, very toasty on a winters day.
